F-ACT: FARM-LEVEL AGROECOLOGY CRITERIA TOOL
Assess your farm with the Agroecology Criteria Tool and find out about its alignment with the agroecology principles
The Farm Level Agroecology Criteria Tool (F-ACT) is a digital decision-making tool that enables farmers to identify ways for making their farms more efficient, resilient, equitable, and ultimately agroecological.
DISCLAIMER: The tool was developed by Edd Colbert and is still work in progress. In case you have any questions or comments, do not hesitate to contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org
