OFoot: Carbon footprint calculator
Organic farmers often use complex management practices to foster a positive impact on the environment. Many tools exist to aid in estimating environmental services but few are able to properly handle the complexities of organic agriculture. We developed an online tool called OFoot to estimate the carbon footprint of organic farms located in the Pacific Northwest and to help evaluate the potential for environmental benefits. OFoot utilizes a cradle-to-gate carbon calculator and a biophysical, process-based, cropping and field management model.
