As a farmer you can use the GAIA biodiversity yardstick (a free internet tool) to get an idea of the on-farm biodiversity. The yardstick makes biodiversity measurable and comparable (with benchmarks). The biodiversity yardstick consists of 40 questions on 6 themes.

  • Crop and animal varieties used
  • General management applied with biodiversity benefits (crop protection, nutrient and soil management)
  • Productive areas under targeted nature management (extensive cropping, postponed mowing, etcetera)
  • Area and management of non-productive elements in the field (water courses, hedgerows, etcetera)
  • Management of natural reserves
  • Green area and management on the farmyard

In most cases you can click a button next a set of possible answers. The answers define scores for the 6 biodiversity themes and scores for their (positive) effect on 11 categories of flora and fauna relevant for agriculture areas. Besides this, surface areas of nature elements on the farm are shown. These surfaces don’t influence the mentioned scores.
