Our Soil Is Our Solution

Agoro Carbon™ is addressing the global climate challenge by inspiring and empowering farmers to sequester carbon in their soils with carbon credit incentives, agronomic expertise and technology. We bring together farmers, ranchers, agronomists, and businesses to form a market-leading, collaborative alliance for ag-based carbon removals. Our objective is to drive a reduction in greenhouse gas emissions in the atmosphere while improving farmers’ and ranchers’ livelihoods and reducing food insecurity. With the support of Agoro Carbon Alliance, farmers and ranchers have a trusted partner in transitioning to conservation farm practices, one that meets their operation’s specific needs, offers access to the carbon marketplace and income through quality verified carbon credits, provides long-term benefits to production, and minimizes risk. Since our June 2021 launch, Agoro Carbon has paid out more than $9 million in revenue to farmers and ranchers. We believe in our work and share the risk, by offering ag producers forward payments for practice changes and supporting them every step of the way with local agronomic advice.

Carbon Farming Is Good For Our Farmers, Our Businesses, And Our Planet

Why all this attention on capturing carbon in soil? Storing carbon in the ground is a highly affordable and scalable way to cut greenhouse gas emissions in the atmosphere. It’s also an enabler of healthy, secure, and sustainable food systems. More than a third (38%) of our global land surface is used for agriculture. Farmers and ranchers are at the forefront of soil carbon sequestration potential. They have a unique opportunity to be an essential resource in reversing the effects of climate change, while enriching their land’s livelihood and sustaining their legacy. Did you know? One metric ton of carbon is removed from our planet’s atmosphere for every 2,000 acres we transition to carbon farming. Carbon improves soil health. It gives soil structure, stores water and nutrients that plants need, and feeds vital organisms. Healthier soil is more productive, resulting in higher crop yields and more resilient food systems.

Joining Agoro Carbon made sense for my ranch because I am always looking for ways to better manage my acreage and utilize all of my forage base. With the capital investment I received, I can add pipelines to move water to other parts of my ranch, allowing for effective rotational grazing. It makes sense for my bottom line, improving plant and nutrient diversity, and ultimately cattle health."
