Field to Market, the non-profit Alliance for Sustainable Agriculture, offers the Fieldprint Calculator, a free and confidential tool developed for corn, cotton, rice, wheat, potatoes and soybean growers that measures outcomes in the field to include a metric to measure water quality. This metric relies on the USDA's Natural Resources Conservation Service Water Quality Index for Agricultural Runoff, or WQIag, which enables farmers to input variables about their field, such as slope, soil characteristics, nutrient and pest management, tillage practices and conservation practices to calculate impact on water quality.
