Title: DEVICES AND METHODS FOR PLANNING AND MONITORING AGRICULTURAL CROP GROWING
Abstract:
In a computing device and agricultural planning method the computing device receives data indicative of at least one practice associated with growing an agricultural crop. An overall sustamability score is determined for at least one sustamability category by determining an overall level for at least one indicator indicative of the sustamability category. A benchmark score is also determined for the at least one sustamability category by determining a benchmark level corresponding to the at least one indicator. The benchmark level is at least in part a function of the crop, the location of the field in which the crop is planted and the sustamability category. A comparison value of the overall sustamability score to the benchmark score for the at least one sustamability category is determined. An indicator of whether the comparison value is below a predetermined minimum threshold comparison value is output.
