David Perry and My Climate Journey host Jason Jacobs discuss Indigo’s work to shift the agricultural industry away from a commodity market and towards a model in which farmers make more money, agriculture is more environmentally friendly, and consumers have access to healthier food.
Originally published on AgFunder. Lauren Stine discusses 2019's difficult weather patterns and their affect on farmers across the United States. Indigo Ag's GeoInnovation team utilizes technology to provide crucial insights to growers during a difficult season.
CEO David Perry speaks to CNBC on their "Future of Business" series about Indigo's work alongside farmers to remove one trillion tons of carbon from the atmosphere through regenerative growing practices. Microbial seed treatments, a living map of the world's food supply, and an innovative approach to grain sale supports this goal.
At the National Association of Farm Broadcasting 2019 convention, Noah Walker, Indigo Ag's Director of Carbon Product and Business Development, speaks with Marlin Bohling of RFD-TV. The two discuss Indigo Carbon, a program that compensates growers for verified tons of carbon dioxide stored in their soil, and The Terraton Initiative, a global initiative to sequester one trillion tons of atmospheric carbon dioxide within agricultural soils.

Indigo Ag Inc., a Boston- based company specializing in agricultural technology and management, is setting up a market for carbon credits. Companies and consumers with voluntary or compulsory commitments to reduce their carbon footprint can, rather than reduce emissions themselves, pay farmers to do it for them. Via the Indigo Carbon marketplace, they can pay farmers like Mr. Hora $15 to sequester one metric ton of carbon dioxide in the soil.
Modern Farmer recently spoke with Indigo Ag CEO David Perry about how the Terraton Initiative works, and how he intends to overcome the obstacles that brought down other farm-based carbon trading platforms.
The Terraton Initiative embodies one specific goal—to remove 1 trillion metric tons of carbon from Earth’s atmosphere. Indigo Agriculture, an agricultural technology company based in Massachusetts, founded and runs the project. To accomplish this goal, the Initiative aims to use “the awesome potential of the soil beneath our feet to absorb one trillion tons of atmospheric carbon,” says David Perry, CEO and Director of Indigo Agriculture.
