Always Looking for More Producers to try the Field Print Calculator
December 2, 2014
Serecon has been collecting farm practice data from producers across Western Canada. This helps us beta-test and get feedback on the Canadian Field Print Calculator. It also gives us a great start on developing regional benchmarks for the sustainability indicators. So far, there are about 540 field-years in the database.
Completing the data takes most farmers 10-30 minutes for a few fields. In return, they get a 5-page PDF report for each field that outlines their performance on land use efficiency, energy use, climate impact, and soil erosion risk.
