In the environmental simulation tool the environmental impact can be assessed of different options which reduce the input of water, fertilizers, energy and crop protections agents. The simulation tool is based on the LCA methodology and takes into account the compilation and evaluation of the inputs and outputs and the potential environmental impacts of a product system throughout its life cycle”.
The economic simulation tool is based on a cost-benefit analysis. All benefits and costs have been surveyed and evaluated in particularly for the input reducing options. Several economic indicators can be calculated.
Both the environmental simulation tool as well as the economic simulation tool describe a farm specific reference situation and a situation with the specific input reducing option. The comparison of both situations will give insight in the possibilities of a specific option for your specific farm situation.
After you have entered the site, use the flag of your country to get the simulation tool in your native language.
