Carbon Credit Revenue Supports the Implementation of Sustainable Practices

By enrolling in the Agoro Carbon program, farmers and ranchers gain access to our professional agronomists and scientists to support implementation of sustainable farming practices. These practices offer an additional source of income through carbon credit payments along with positive benefits such as healthier soils and long-term productivity improvements.

Carbon Payments

Payments are made for new tons of carbon captured (above the baseline) and are measured in ton (equivalent to 2,205 pounds). A per-ton price is established for each payment method, and allows for market price appreciation during the length of the contract.

Beyond the revenue generated from selling carbon credits, farmers and ranchers have the potential to benefit from long-term productivity improvements brought about by conservation practices and healthier soils.

Make Practice Changes & Get Paid to Improve Your Soil

Row Crop Practices

It is well known that soil conservation practices drive productivity and boost your farm’s bottom line. Now, they can also generate carbon credits, opening a new source of income.

Pasture & Range Practices

Sound pasture management drives productivity, animal health, and operational resiliency. When you implement certain practice changes, you can also generate carbon credits that deliver supplemental income for your ranch.

Grazing Icon

Grazing Management

Altering stocking rate and grazing days improves yield and forage intake, while improving soil carbon.

Biodiversity Icon


Adding a species to your ranch can improve yield, carbon storage, and
animal health.

Paul Graddy

Nebraska Farmer

“I explored several carbon programs with my advisor and ended up signing with Agoro, because they provided the best explanation of carbon markets and offered the most attractive carbon payment structure that helped offset some of the upfront costs of adopting soil-health practices. The opportunity to receive long-term carbon income for my farm operation while improving soil-health were key factors in my decision.”

“What I was wanting was something that would provide extra cash flow to the operation, but also not hinder the management of the operation. Agoro Carbon was just a perfect fit for us.”

“Agoro Carbon brings long-term value to a ranch system by starting from below the ground up. We help to implement management practices that build soil health through organic matter storage, soil microbe biodiversity and activity and water holding capacity. Soil health translates into higher forage yield and quality which leads to healthier animals and more profit at sales time. Through building soil health the rancher invests in their long-term legacy and ensures that the ranch will be profitable in the future and can be passed on to
future generations.”
