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.

The certificate is an opportunity to obtain a loan on more favourable terms

  • Machinery leasing from 1.49% + 6-month Euribor
  • Working capital - loan interest rate is reduced by 0.3%
  • For infrastructure development Including for production of renewable energy for self-consumption of the farm - loan interest rate is reduced by 0.3%
  • Land purchase loan - loan interest rate is reduced by 0.3% and the repayment period can be up to 30 years

To qualify for the certificate, the farm needs to meet the following conditions on a day-to-day basis.

Farm’s GHG* assessment

  • Where energy emissions (including fuel) represent more than 20% of total emissions from non-perennial crop production activity, these emissions must be in a 10% reduction trajectory from a 5-year perspective.

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.
  • At least 75% of living plant coverage index. This means that on average, fields should have crops growing at least 9 months of the year. Winter crops and cover crops can be used to achieve this crop coverage.
  • Residue should be left on the field or replaced respectively with manure to avoid nutrient loss.

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).
  • No increases in quantities of plant protection products used (either in total, or per crop type per unit area) compared to an annual baseline average determined over a rolling 5 year baseline period.

Learn more

  1. The farm applies for the certificate in the official partner’s system.
  2. Partner carries out an inspection of the farm and the farm receives the certificate. In case of failure to meet the criteria - an assessment about the necessary improvements.
  3. If the improvements are made - the certificate is issued at the end of the season.
  4. Once the certificate is received, it can be submitted at the bank to get more favourable terms of financing. For additional loan obligations, the farm undertakes to comply with the certificate requirements over the entire loan period*.

* If the sustainable farming certificate is not submitted at the end of every farming season, the bank will raise the price of the respective loan by 0.3% or, in case of leasing, by 1%.
