To support agroecology.science in their mission to enable farmers to better measure their impact on the environment, we developed a web-based application with which farmers can assess their sustainability.
The web application consists of a dashboard for farmers, in which they can start new assessments, review previous ones, access their reports as well as download them. Furthermore, Aelsa provides a highly flexible way for administrators to adjust the current version of the assessment without the need for additional development work. B-works turned a complex Excel based assessment with many formulas into an easily accessible web application that provides lots of freedom to the administrators.
