Risk maps and scenario analysis
Risk maps bring your OVERSEER® nutrient budget to life and let you see where your farm’s hotspots are – areas where you’re losing a lot of nitrogen, phosphate, sediment or E. coli. Targeting these Critical Source Areas (CSAs) first will have the biggest impact on improving your farm’s environmental performance.


Farm Environment Plans
After validating the mitigation scenarios for your farm, a Farm Sustainability Services specialist will integrate MitAgator’s risk maps and mitigation scenarios into a comprehensive Farm Environment Plan. We’ll highlight the good management practices already in place as well as point out the ones that can be worked towards.


Nutrient retention

Helping your land hold on to nutrients is vital to keep it healthy and productive for the long-haul. MitAgator identifies which soil areas are working well, and how you can help other areas perform better.


Contaminants, bacteria and water quality

MitAgator provides over 25 different mitigation scenarios, from riparian planting to constructed wetlands, giving you confidence to make informed decisions to protect your waterways.


Sediment and soil erosion
MitAgator can help you manage slippage and sediment loss from your land by pinpointing risk areas and providing various mitigation options to suit your budget and farm type.
