The theme of agriculture as system though it is commonly understood is an innovative area of research and erudition. It involves both a technical meaning of system and cybernetic as these arise in respect of their epistemological meaning of unity of knowledge in highly complementary orders; as well as some of the wellbeing implications are studied in methodological way within the substantive context of system and cybernetic. The result then is a scientific, technical, and social development of the theme of agriculture as system for the common human good. Within this meaningful connotation, the economics of agriculture is invoked. This area is further extended to the broader field of ecology, resource, and environment inter-causal linkages within and between them. The treatment of agriculture as system and cybernetic study then leads into methodological and mathematical formalism that can be formulated as a model of evaluation of wellbeing subject to simulacra of multidimensional variable interrelationship. With data searched by the researchers in further studies in this area of agriculture system, the wellbeing simulation subject to circular causation between the multidimensional variables can be empirically evaluated using sophisticated statistical programs. Resulting policy and inter-system results can be analyzed to derive socioeconomic inferences. A plethora of further technical studies with the methodological features of system and cybernetic study can be derived.
