Incentivizing growers to sequester soil carbon
Growers have not been financially motivated to view soil carbon as a critical input to the profitability of their farming operations. The agriculture industry needs more powerful incentives, more efficient market mechanisms, clearer market signals, and more transparent methods for accounting for carbon sequestration in order to motivate growers to shift to regenerative agricultural practices and drive carbon into their soils.
We seek novel financial products and services that reward growers for sequestering soil carbon and drive rapid adoption of regenerative management practices. These solutions can support the scaling of existing and emergent ecosystem service market frameworks or propose new methodologies that might drive faster change across the agriculture industry.
