The index called “Environmental Sustainability” allows you to measure and compare different practices in different fields that generate a positive environmental impact on the crop.
The values of this index range from 0 to 10, with fields with values close to 0 having the lowest environmental sustainability, and those close to 10 having the highest sustainability.
The following parameters are used to calculate the index per field:
- Cover crop: Analyzes whether a cover crop was declared in the current campaign. (Recorded in Rotations).
- Use of precision agriculture: Analyzes whether variable input management is used in the field. (Recorded in Maps).
- Impact of inputs used: By comparing the amount used and the EIQ* of the components used between the current and previous campaign, it is analyzed whether there was a higher efficiency in their use. (Recorded in Application log).
- No-till: Analyzes/verifies whether no-till was used as a method in the current campaign.(Recorded in Sowing).
- Crop rotation: Analyzes the crops declared in the last 4 years and verifies whether crop rotations were carried out and the complexity of these.(Recorded in (Recorded in Rotations).
EIQ of Field: = EIQ x % Concentration of active ingredient x Dose
