About SISC Metrics

Through multi-stakeholder collaboration, SISC has developed, refined and adopted eight Version 1.0 Working Metrics: 
  • Applied Water Use Efficiency

  • Habitat and Biodiversity

  • Energy Use with GHG Translator

  • Nitrogen Use

  • Phosphorus Use

  • Soil Health: Organic Carbon Concentration and Aggrigate Stablity

  • Simple Irrigation Efficiency

  • Food Loss

SISC is currently working on 1 new metric:

  1. Soil Emissions

Read details about each of the individual Working Metrics here. And, if you would like to see a DATA Dictonary, which lists all data needed to complete each metric, you can see that HERE. 

For an introduction to SISC metrics, listen to a Webinar Overview of SISC Metrics: A Dialogue with Potato Growers  (scroll down to learn more or select an excerpt).
