The Stewardship Index for Specialty Crops (SISC) is a multi-stakeholder initiative dedicated to developing tools for measuring sustainable performance across the specialty crops supply chain. SISC offers a suite of outcomes-focused metrics enabling operators to benchmark, compare, and communicate their own performance.

Measure to Manage: Use the Metrics!
SISC offers five Working Metrics – plus lots of supporting materials:

Pilot Testing
We are currently conducting focused pilots with partners seeking to use on-farm metric data to address specific market opportunities, demands, and/or regulatory pressures. To follow our progress, please click here.
