Abstract

This paper incorporates the interdisciplinary New Institutional Economics and suggests a holistic framework for analyzing, assessing and improving the system of environmental management in agriculture. First, the importance of issue is presented and a short review on the state of economic studies in the area is made. The needs and mechanisms of agro-eco-management are clarified. Institutional, behavioral, technological, natural etc. factors of agro-eco-management efficiency are identified. The Discrete Structural Analysis is used and the principal market, private, and public modes for effective agro-eco-management are determined. Finally, stages for analyzing and improvement of eco-management in agriculture are presented.
