To support specialty crop supply chain collaboration for regenerative agriculture

SISC & CropTrak release Stewardship Calculator 2.0

Stewardship Index for Specialty Crops (SISC), and CropTrak® announced the public release of the Stewardship Calculator 2.0 to help growers measure a wide-range of on-farm data for better crop management and help brands more easily aggregate that data for sustainability and ESG reporting.

“Following a robust pilot program with leading brands and growers, we are now offering this online calculator of the SISC metrics to help standardize ways to create and maintain measurement across tier one supply chains. The updated tool enables consistent communication of aggregated data – the key ingredient users said would help improve transparency and adoption of more sustainable practices,” said Alison Edwards, Director, SISC.

Powered by CropTrak’s cloud technology platform, the Stewardship Calculator 2.0 is used to track broad regenerative ag practices including resource and nutrient management; on-farm energy/GHG; as well as biodiversity, food waste and water use efficiency. Developed in collaboration with retailers and suppliers such as Walmart and Del Monte, the SISC calculator helps inform sustainability reporting for brands and their suppliers, as well as to improve production plans and supply chain management practices.

In November 2021, SISC and CropTrak announced a partnership to build this new tool to help growers and their supply chain partners collaborate in improving natural resource management on the ground. Available free to growers, large retail brands are now using the cost-effective calculator to create a single reporting model linked to SISC’s industry recognized key performance metrics. The digital tool enables users to easily upload data that is automatically translated into standardized reporting metrics and reports for quick, easy communication to other partners.
