Even experts struggle to measure biodiversity down to species level – how does Sandy assess biodiversity?
Sandy assesses biodiversity via a proprietary modelling algorithm based on land uses and management practices across the farm. This algorithm has been developed in partnership with the Trinity AgTech scientific board, and in particular with 17 biodiversity experts from across the country. Ground surveys are expensive, time-consuming and inconsistent; the biodiversity module within Sandy provides a standardised scoring system across five separate biodiversity categories which directly represents the user’s management practices.
How does Sandy’s water protection module evaluate the water pollution?
Sandy’s water protection module provides the most comprehensive nitrate leaching and nitrogen uptake efficiency model available to farms and farmers.
