GLRPPR Sector Resource: Stewardship Index For Specialty Crops: Measuring Sustainability Performance

Title:
Stewardship Index For Specialty Crops: Measuring Sustainability Performance

Abstract:
The Stewardship Index for Specialty Crops (SISC) is one answer to the complex question of what sustainability means for producers and consumers of specialty crops (fruits, vegetables and nuts). SISC aims to advance both optimal production and strong environmental protection by offering a suite of science-driven metrics empowering producers to measure on-farm practices (i.e. water use, nitrogen use, etc.) accurately and consistently.
