Features of the LEAF Sustainable Farming Review

Prac­ti­cal, easy to use man­age­ment tool for farmers

Ques­tions with­in each of the nine sec­tions reflect a par­tic­u­lar IFM prin­ci­ple and togeth­er cov­er eco­nom­ic per­for­mance, envi­ron­men­tal qual­i­ty and social health. Man­age­ment reports are also pro­vid­ed to allow farm­ers to doc­u­ment, eval­u­ate and map out improve­ments over time as well as high­light areas to focus on in the future. 

The LEAF Sus­tain­able Farm­ing Review replaces the LEAF Audit and has been devel­oped in close con­sul­ta­tion with farm­ers. It offers a very prac­ti­cal, easy to use man­age­ment tool to help farm­ers make more informed deci­sions that will dri­ve their busi­ness for­ward – eco­nom­i­cal­ly, envi­ron­men­tal­ly and socially. 

The LEAF Sus­tain­able Farm­ing Review is avail­able to LEAF mem­bers through MyLEAF.
