Formatted Abstract/Summary
Although information systems play a critical role in organizational performance their contribution to environmental performance in agriculture has not been fully investigated because there is a lack of suitable measurement criteria that can inform on the environmental performance contribution of information systems. Currently available measurement criteria form a foundation on which additional more relevant criteria are identified. This paper details the development of an instrument to measure the  information systems contribution to a sustainable agricultural management system. We used a qualitative methodology, allowing the exploration of themes and items to emerge during the research process. Scale validity was evaluated and tested for internal validity, external validity, and reliability using a pilot study.   The final result of the research is an instrument with 41 items and 8 constructs and illustrates a contemporary approach to instrument development.
