    This paper considers optimal production scheduling of an agricultural product to find the best matching between farmers and retailers with contract. It is important to construct the agricultural production system to hold the win-win relationship among all stakeholders in terms of sustainability. Therefore, in this paper, a multiobjective programming problem for the sustainable agricultural supply chain management is formulated to both find the optimal matching between farmers and retailers. It is generally difficult to obtain the best solution for all stakeholders directly. Therefore, Bellman-Zadeh approach is introduced, and the efficient algorithm to obtain these optimal solutions is also developed.
