Increasingly, the marketplace is demanding an accounting of sustainability practices, but how are you measuring and communicating stewardship in your operations? Western Growers, in partnership with the Stewardship Index for Specialty Crops (SISC) and SupplyShift, has developed a Stewardship Calculator, an advanced online tool and visualization platform that allows growers and supply chain partners to quantify their sustainability practices.
Join us for our Sustainability Metrics in Agriculture: New Online Stewardship Calculator webinar on Wednesday, October 21 from 11:00 a.m. – 12:00 p.m. PT. We will provide an overview of the SISC, discuss the importance of sustainability in growing operations, and offer a demonstration of the Stewardship Calculator, an online tool for assessing the following sustainability metrics:
- Applied Water Use Efficiency
- Simple Irrigation Efficiency
- Habitat and Biodiversity
- Energy Use
- Nitrogen Use
- Phosphorus Use
- Soil Organic Matter
- Food Loss
There will be a Q&A session following the presentation.
