  • The company has up to 9 employees.

What is it?

The Sustainable Farming Certificate is for farms that are engaged in agriculture as the principal or as one of their activities.

Purpose of the certificate

  • Encouraging eco-friendly and responsible farming
  • Helping farmers farm more profitably
  • Ensuring farms have access to more favourable terms of financing

eAgronom is Swedbank’s official partner in the issuance and monitoring of the certificate.

Crop rotation and soil coverage

  • At least 5-year crop rotation, including 1 year of legume (pea, bean, etc.). Multi-species cover crop counts as one crop.

Soil management

  • Prevent soil compaction by avoiding traffic on wet fields. This means doing field operations on time, before or after excessive humidity periods (standing water on the field).
  • Peatlands may not be cultivated to avoid loss of soil’s organic carbon. Such wetlands should be kept as is, or turned into grasslands.
  • Maintain permanent grassland. A land that has been grassland for 5 or more consecutive years should remain as such.

Nutrient management and plant protection

  • Precision fertilization is used for mineral nitrogen application, taking into account soil analyzes, yield maps, and other field-specific information.
  • Manure is incorporated into the soil via injection (slurry) or within 1h (manure).
