Carbon credits for farmers – Get paid for improving your soils
Joining the carbon program now is a great opportunity to future-proof your farm
By participating in the eAgronom Carbon Program, you will:
- Improve your soil quality – Keep more nutrients in the soil and improve water holding capacity
- Reduce the cost of inputs – Optimise your fuel and fertiliser use
- Get paid for the Carbon Credits you generate.
Farmers are the key in the fight against climate change
Agriculture is a major opportunity to reduce air pollution and create carbon sinks.
- Agriculture (non livestock) generates 15% of the worlds carbon pollution, but this can be reduced through investment in technology and conservative farming practices.
- Soil is the largest carbon sink outside of oceans.
- Carbon removal will be crucial to avoiding the most catastrophic impacts of climate change.
Carbon credits program designed for farmers
We understand that farming is complex and unpredictable. It’s hard to make long term commitments when the future seems uncertain. That’s why we have designed a flexible program for farmers that makes participating in the Carbon Program as hassle-free as possible.
Long-term opportunity to increase farm performance
- Increase soil fertility, reduce costs of inputs and earn extra income.
- The longer you stay in the program, the more you will benefit.
- You can add fields all the time
- You can remove fields or exit the program at any time
- You won’t be penalised if your farm won’t deliver Carbon Removal Units (CRUs)
Backed by science
- Our methodology is developed together with the world’s top soil and carbon scientists and agricultural universities.
- eAgronom will engage an external auditor to verify the Carbon Removal Units (CRUs) in accordance with the guidelines.
- Choose when to sell your credits. eAgronom can help broker the sales to carbon credit buyers
- Certification pending
Advisory by top carbon and agronomic experts
- As a part of eAgronom Carbon Program, you will
- Receive a detailed audit of the current situation
- Work with our expert advisors to improve carbon sequestration and reduce emissions (recommended)
Technology to help maximise your benefits and simplify the work
- Tracking carbon footprint with eAgronom is easy and transparent
- Supported by integrated satellite maps
- AI-powered crop rotation planning helps to generate the most optimal crop plan
How to reduce atmospheric carbon with farming?
Sequester more carbon into the soil
- More legumes in the crop rotation
- Cover crops and under-crops
- Leave straw and/or animal manure on the field
Reduce emissions – keep more carbon in the soil
- Minimize tilling
- Manage soil compaction
- Optimized and precise mineral fertilization
- Reduce fuel usage
Benefits of adopting regenerative farming practices
- Higher levels of soil organic matter.
- More nutrients in the soil for crops to grow (healthy soils capture more nutrients from your applications).
- Potential to further optimise fertiliser use and therefore reduce costs.
- Improved water holding capacity (humidity stays in the soil for longer).
- Healthy soil is less compact.
- A carbon credit is a bonus on top of everything else.
How does eAgronom Carbon Program work?
1. Farmer confirms the interest to join the program by signing a pre-agreement.
2. eAgronom performs the initial farm carbon audit.
3. Record historical data and make a plan to add new practices.
- eAgronom Agronomic Advisory Team works with the farmer to develop a holistic plan with a goal to achieve the best financial results, reduce carbon emissions and increase soil carbon levels.
- The farmer decides to go with the proposed plan or adopt his own choice of practices.
4. New practices are implemented on the farm and recorded with eAgronom Software.
5. Calculate impact – eAgronom calculates the carbon credits generated on your farm, based on reduced CO2 emissions and increased carbon levels in the soil.
6. Farmer receives payment – Credits are sold to corporate buyers and other organisations. Farmer gets paid for the carbon credits.
