Frequently Asked Questions
Agricultural carbon credits are verified carbon dioxide (CO2) tons, or an equivalent amount of another greenhouse gas (GHG), avoided and removed from the atmosphere because of the implementation of regenerative agricultural land management activities on cropland and pastureland. Agricultural carbon credits are considered a Natural Climate Solution (NCS) – the conservation, restoration, and improved management of ecosystems to reduce or remove greenhouse gases from the atmosphere. Implementing these regenerative agricultural practices that create Agoro Carbon credits lead to increased carbon sequestration rates in the soil, reduced soil disturbance and erosion, increased crop residue, improved water management, and improved forage quality and quantity. Additional benefits include improvements in soil, water, and air quality, biological diversity enhancement, the provision of natural habitats, and ecosystem functioning.

Agoro Carbon is a farmer-centric company, and we align our success directly with our farmers and ranchers’ success. We support our farmers and ranchers’ transition to regenerative practices every step of the way. As such it is in all parties’ interest to ensure that practices are implemented correctly. We then work together with our growers through their transition journey, providing dedicated agronomic support and advice, exclusive digital tools, and access to our alliance of partners to ensure we are doing all we can to set them up for success. Throughout the life of the contract, Agoro Carbon and its partners monitor on-farm operations, practices, and data for practice implementation verification and progress. If at any point there is a question that carbon sequestration isn’t being maximized, our Grower Success Team will work to make sure the highest quality of credits is being generated.
Farmers and ranchers can benefit from stacking ancillary agronomic and financial incentives along with complimentary support through the life of the contract. Financial incentives include multiple pay-out options, with upfront payments and a specialty market with high demand for low-carbon commodities. Agronomic benefits from increasing the soil organic carbon through these practice changes include increased water-holding capacity, nutrient cycling, cation exchange capacity, microbial abundance, resilience to abiotic stressors, and the ability to infiltrate rainfall.
