Therefore, this study had been conducted in order to determine the status of knowledge, attitude and practice (KAP) of farmers towards sustainable agriculture. A total of 30 vegetables farmers in Kundasang, Sabah were selected randomly from the list given by the Department of Agriculture Ranau. Data collection method used was face-to-face interview by objective structured questionnaire.
