The association Eco-fit works closely with Farmleap to develop a digital platform data exchange and analysis. Eco-phyt brings together economic and environmental interest groups (EEIG) located in Nord-Pas-de-Calais, in the Somme, in the Seine-Normandy sector and in Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes. It supports sectors agribusiness (farmers and processors) in HVE certification and, from 2023, onwards carbon credits. Its board of directors is made up of farmers.
“The platform, called Go Green Farm, provides access to history and indicators for each farm”, explains Ghislain Leprince, consultant and coordinator of Eco-phyt. Objective: to allow the farmer to have access to the details of the actions to be carried out to access the certificate HVE or low carbon.
The system is based on a principle of data feedback from the company (weather, agronomic, interventions, etc.) with a guarantee on traceability and transparency. The only constraint for the farmer: keep the return of his family updated data. “ For the moment, the link has been established with Isagri’s solutionssays Ghislain Leprince. During 2023, this should be extended to Mesparcelles or even Smag. »
Save time assembling the file
There are different profiles for the connection: operator, technician, administrator, consultant, certifier, etc. “There is a management of rights, not everyone has access to everything”says Ghislain Leprince. This is not data sharing. They remain the property of the operator who can also suspend the connection at any time. » The new indicators produced by Eco-phyt from data analysis belong to it because they are no longer raw data.
The adoption by the operators is quite satisfactory, believes the facilitator. The system offers both a global and an individual view of the farms and the facilitator accompanying the certification can proceed on the files without prompting the farmer. “Dematerialization saves time in creating certification files”, he illustrates. Furthermore, in case of a check, the documents are easily accessible.
The platform is a data tool but also a comparison tool because it allows you to be located with respect to the group averages. “It helps us steer farms towards achievable and relevant levers”says the facilitator.
