About the project:
This tool is part of the LIFT ('Low-Input Farming and Territories – Integrating knowledge for improving ecosystem-based farming') project that has received funding from the European Union's Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under grant agreement No 770747.
The overall goal of LIFT is to identify the potential benefits of the adoption of ecological farming in the European Union (EU) and to understand how socio-economic and policy factors impact the adoption, performance and sustainability of ecological farming at various scales, from the level of the single farm to that of a territory.
About the tool:
The main objective of the tool is to assign a farm to one of the ecological types identified in the LIFT farm typology, based on user data (see tab 'User data'). The tool gives a graphical snapshot of the current situation of a farm in terms of ecological practices, and offers the possibility to explore effects of input changes (see tab 'Ecological type').
Further, the LIFT typology-tool enables to compare performances covering the economic, social and employment, as well as environmental dimensions of farms belonging to different ecological types, taking into account bioregions and types of farming (TF) (see tab 'Peer-Comparison').
