Is the new version compatible with the previous ones ?
We have optimized the indicIADes sites while keeping consistency with the survey you filled out in the old versions. You will therefore find all the surveys completed in previous years.
However, new questions intended to have greater precision in the indicators that we calculate have been added.Our advice u>: before filling in a new survey, click on "modify" the previous survey that you saved. This will have two advantages:
What's new ?
There are many.
First, the follow-up of the questionnaire has been simplified to be more ergonomic.
Entering animal cultures and workshops has also been simplified. < / p>
In addition, new crops will gradually be added in indiciades: market gardening, viticulture, arboriculture, ...
The results are also more legible.
Do we have to declare our crops plot by plot ?
No, of course. But this is an option offered by the new version of indicIADes.
As tedious as this option may seem, it has several advantages:
I lost my login credentials. How to recover them ?
To retrieve your password, click on " forgot password ”at the top right of the home page. You will receive an email at the email address with which you created your account.
I have lost my login. How to recover it ?
During some registrations, subscribers enter either their initials, the name of their farm, or any other data other than their first and last name. In this case, we can only help you if you make the request by email to email@example.com by specifying the email address with which you have been registered.
I changed my email address. How can I keep my account and all the data I have already integrated on indicIADes ?
To keep your account and all this data, simply send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org , specifying your name and surname, your login, your old email and your new email.
You will receive an email confirming that your new email address has been taken into account.
You will not lose any of your data. p>
Yes, of course. The administration of indicIADes does not have access to any of your data. He only knows your last name, first name, address and email. And this information is decorrelated from all the data you enter in indicIADes.
For this reason, we can only help you with your personal data if you expressly request it by email to email@example.com. The research will then be carried out by a company independent of the IAD which manages the servers. Hence the possibility of a response time.
How long does it take to complete the survey ?
Depending on the complexity of your agricultural activity, you will need between 1 hour 30 and 4 hours maximum when entering the first suvey.
This duration is then divided by 2 or 3 when entering the following annual financial year. Indeed, with each new entry, the previous value appears in order to simplify the filling of the survey. An arrow allows you to duplicate the data, if they have not changed.
Should the entire survey be fullfiled ?
No, not everything is mandatory. It all depends on the nature of your activity.
However, a certain number of questions remain mandatory. A cursor lets you know your progress in filling out the survey. And the mandatory questions are surrounded by a red frame.
IndicIADes is critized for its lack of transparency in the calculations. Is it correct ?
This is partially correct, but indicIADes is not a black box. In the main menu, you will find a "Technical sheet" describing all the indicators, as well as a "Bibliography" giving all the scientific sources used to build the indicators. In these documents, you will find certain calculation formulas, for others, only the method is presented.
This is not a lack of transparency, but the desire to protect property intellectual methods of calculating indicators that are the result of long research work and significant financial investment.
By making this choice to keep confidentiality on the calculation formulas, the IAD saves itself from "copies" likely to misuse this tool and can therefore continue to make it available to all farmers free of charge.
The margins (minimum and maximum) of the indicators are the same for everyone, regardless of the production system. Is it true ?
When you calculate your results, the margins are effectively independent of the production systems.
But, on this results page, as soon as you use the comparison module, the margins are recalculated according to minima and maxima of all farmers to whom you compare (and not of all farmers subscribed to indicIADes). This gives you a much more precise view of your results compared to the chosen population.
The results are too static and do not offer a dynamic vision.
Understand that the results cannot be dynamic if there is no basis for comparison.
To offer you a dynamic vision, you must have completed two consecutive years of results. Then you will have the possibility on the results page to compare yourself from one year to the next. And if you have more than two completed years, you can choose your comparison year.
How to interpret the results ?
indicIADes is not an expert system and will not tell you what to do.
The first expert is the farmer who, better than anyone, knows his farm. IndicIADes helps him to have a concrete vision of his results.
However, we offer you the possibility of making a first rapid analysis of your results for 50 €, in order to possibly refer you to the best experts or adapted training. All you have to do is send us an email to firstname.lastname@example.org with your radar and all the data from your farm (to download from the "Results" page).
Finally, one way of interpreting your results lies in the comparisons that you can make with systems close to your farm, according to the selection criteria that are allowed to you in the "Results" page.
I want to keep my results and my data. How to do ?
You have 3 options:
Note that this" Results "page also allows you to consult all of your data statistics. p>
In the "Balance sheet C" Why is the 4/1000 balance not displayed ?
Pour que le bilan 4 pour 1.000 puisse s’afficher, il faut remplir deux questionnaires annuels successifs. En effet, ce calcul porte sur la différence de stockage Carbone d’une année sur l’autre.
Why use TOE (Ton of Oil Equivalent) in the indicators ?
TOE is a universal measurement unit which allows many other units of mass, energy or power to be converted (Joule, Calorie, kWh, m3 gas, CO2, ...).
It therefore makes it possible to measure the efficiency of any agricultural activity (TOE consumed) by relating them to final production (TOE produced).
What is the interest of a label « Green Carbon Farm » ?
First a few words about the interest of Carbon. The joint sequestration of Carbon and Nitrogen in soils in the form of humus (C / N = 10), makes it possible to increase the fertility of the soil (increase in the rate of OM), to improve the structure of the soil and the water retention, ... and also eliminates or reduces the risk of nitrates leaching.
In addition, carbon sequestration in soils and trees can partially or completely compensate GHG emissions associated with food production in the production system.
The IAD “Green Carbon Farm” label is the display of good agricultural practices, soil quality and a Positive carbon footprint, helping to fight climate change.
How to obtain the “Green Carbon Farm” label ?
First of all, the following conditions must be met in the "Results" page on indicIADes, "Green Carbon Farm" sheet:
If you meet these conditions, you must apply for the “Green Carbon Farm” label by email to email@example.com by joining the corresponding sheet. After validation of your data by an expert, the label will be issued to you and a “Green Carbon Farm” plate (Alu 30x40) sent.

We invite you to read in detail our charter for the protection of personal data. This can be viewed at any time at the bottom of all pages of the indicIADes sites. Sorry if it's yet only in French.
Are you in compliance with the data protection rules of the European Directive?
Since the opening of indicIADes sites in 2013, we have build up a data protection strategy "by design". It is therefore the very architecture of the databases that guarantees the protection and security of your personal data.
All of the information relating to these provisions is permanently available on the indicIAD sites below page, "Data protection" section.
How do you use the Data ?
We do not give, sell or trade your personal data with anyone.
But as your personal data is anonymized and confidential, and decorrelated from information on your agricultural activity, we consolidate averaged statistics according to all the available criteria.
These statistical analyzes give us a precise vision of sustainable agriculture in France, but also abroad (because indicIADes is also available in English and Spanish). This analysis is unique, no other statistical body having correlated data on the 3 economic, social and environmental levels.
How long do you keep the data for ?
Two cases :
indicIADes allows you to draw up an annual assessment of your results indicators. It would therefore be inconsistent to delete them after 90 days.
We have defined a period of 2 years at the end of which we will contact you. If there is no response, we will delete your personal data. Note that it will therefore be impossible to reassign your previous results to your account.
But above all, indicIADes is not a commercial site. In addition, we undertake not to disseminate your personal data in any case to any operator whatsoever, except possibly to groups for which you have voluntarily specified your membership (opt-in). In this case, you will be informed by email anyway with the possibility of refusing any transfer of information (opt-out).
Do I have a right to rectify or erase my data ?
Yes in both cases, according to the following procedures:
