Once you are logged into your Agrible account, select the Sustainability tool in the Tools menu and select a field in which you wish to complete Sustainability for.
Quick Tip: If you are participating in a Sustainability Campaign and you are unsure about which crop and year you are required to complete, start a live conversation with Agrible in the lower right hand corner and let us know which program you are a part of.
Step 1. Open the Sustainability tool
Within the Sustainability tool, select the crop year of interest by using the options filter in the upper right hand corner. Even if the crop type is incorrect, proceed to selecting the correct year as the crop type can be changed later.
Quick Tip: The Agrible system pre-populates crop years into Field Story when the fields are added. All of the pre-populated defaults can be edited to what actually happened on your farm. Learn more in I have added my fields, but it looks like there is already data in my account.
Step 2. Complete the Required Events
The required events include planting, tillage, field characteristics, fertilization, chemical applications, soil tests, harvest, and the previous crop's planting. The previous crop's planting information is required to understand the crop rotation of the field. If you did not perform any of the following field operations, then they will not be required. The system identifies the "if applicable" field events automatically.
- Your objective: Update each required event card, so that they are all presented as green check marks. A green check mark signifies that you have updated the information required for completing Sustainability. You will not be able to move to the next step until all required events are presented as green check marks.
While completing data entry for each field, there are some cases where you will need to delete default events or add additional events. For example, if you perform no-till as your tillage practice you will need to delete the default tillage events. Or if you applied chemical applications to a field, you would need to add a new field event.

Step 3. Select "Calculate"
Once all required events have been updated and completed (green check marks), the "Calculate" button will activate and should be executed for each individual field. Executing "Calculate" for each field is comparable to submitting your information. This step signifies completion for a field.
Step 4. Your Sustainability Results
After selecting "Calculate" for a field in the Sustainability tool, your sustainability metrics will be calculated and available to you the next day at 5 a.m. To learn more about your Sustainability results, visit Understanding your Sustainability Metrics.
