The Triple Bottom Line of Crop Planning
By Jess Snobelen CCA-ON, 4R NMS
Crop Sales Specialist
AGRIS Co-operative Thamesville - Tupperville

As the 2016 harvest season comes to a close, many growers will reflect on the growing season and try to make the best decisions for 2017. Decisions that consider the social, environmental and economic impacts on an operation; what we call, the triple bottom line. No question, there has been plenty of coverage in social media and news on the health of the Great Lakes and other freshwater systems that are impacted by nutrient imbalances. Imbalances that cause algae blooms damaging water ecosystems and start the finger pointing game of who’s to blame.

2016 Plot Data

AGGrower Daily Dashboard
Three local Agri-businesses team up to create a uniquely local southern Ontario-based weather network to provide better field specific recommendations
AGRIS Co-operative Ltd., Wanstead Farmers Co-operative Co. Ltd. and Haggerty Creek Ltd. have initiated the AGGrower Daily Dashboard project to address the need for better and more accurate weather information that will enable growers to enhance their ability to identify, respond quickly and efficiently to climactic events, and ultimately better adapt to and manage day-to-day risk. 

“This new tool, part of our Advanced Information Systems suite of programs, provides the growing conditions information needed to fine-tune operational and input decision-making ‘by crop, and by individual field’ using the 4R’s throughout the planting, growing and harvesting season”, explains project lead Dale Cowan, senior agronomist for the three participating firms.
