The Fieldprint? Calculator is a pioneering assessment framework that empowers brands, retailers, suppliers and farmers at every stage in their sustainability journey, to measure the environmental impacts of commodity crop production and identify opportunities for continuous improvement.Management information entered into the tool is analyzed and transformed into a Fieldprint Analysis, which graphically represents the sustainability performance of a farmer?s unique operation.
This free, online tool helps growers voluntarily and securely analyze how their management choices impact natural resources and operational efficiency.
The Fieldprint Analysis estimates field level performance on the following sustainability indicators:
- Energy Use
- Greenhouse Gas Emissions
- Irrigated Water Use
- Land Use
- Soil Carbon
- Soil Conservation
- Water Quality
The Fieldprint Platform is simple to use, though the technology behind it is very complex. The Platform uses datasets and methodologies developed by multiple sources, including USDA?s Natural Resources Conservation Service.
