Human activity in the agricultural sector has had environmental and social consequences on the sustainability of production practices. In environmental terms, conventional agriculture causes soil erosion, pollution and high consumption of bodies of water, greenhouse gas emissions, deforestation, and loss of biodiversity, among others. Through a systematic literature review, this article aims to identify the drivers that lead farmers to adopt or take on activities within sustainable agriculture. A search equation was designed with the most appropriate keywords, retrieving 118 articles. From the first filter, 47 articles were selected and read in full. A matrix was built with the following criteria: country of study, agricultural sector, activity adopted, driver, and its classification as external or internal to the farmer. Vantage Point 10.0 software was used to graph and analyze the results. Two hundred fifty-nine drivers were found. The main ones were education, membership in farmer organizations, family income, land tenure, access to the market, information and credit, farm size, age, and experience. The drivers can contribute to new studies on adopting or accepting these drivers in agricultural activities framed within sustainable agriculture.
