Deveron
Date: 2021-09-22
Toronto, Ontario-based agriculture digital services and insights provider Deveron Corp. is reporting the launch of its agricultural carbon services platform to provide a scalable and streamlined process of collecting, analyzing, and sharing in-field soil carbon data to support the development of carbon programs.

The platform, which eliminates a number of bottlenecks impeding the current market for agriculture carbon, enables the creation of reliable and credible carbon credits. The platform leverages the company's growing network of trained and dedicated soil technicians across North America to ensure consistency of sampling, provides single chain of custody from the farm to the lab in a digital platform, and ensures soil data integrity and security.

Survey Finds Interest in Farm Carbon Capture Low (Ind. Report)
Corte Agriscience
Date: 2021-09-03
A recent Corte Agriscience survey of 600 row-crop farmers in the U.S. notes that farmers say they need a subsidy of $40 per acre to adopt carbon-capture technology to curb global warming. Sixty-six per cent of the farmers surveyed said they have already implemented soil health practices such as using cover crops and/or reduced tillage that would qualify them to enroll in most carbon programs. Even so, participation in carbon-capture programs remains low. With 72 pct of respondents aware of carbon offerings, only 3 pct are enrolled in a carbon sequestration program.

According to the survey, "Many farmers indicate that they would consider a carbon program if the payout per acre reached $20; however, it isn't until the payout per acre would reach an estimated $40 that the majority said they would commit to participation in a program."

Corteva, Indigo Ag Collaborate on Farm Carbon Credit (Ind. Report)
Corteva
Date: 2021-09-01
Wilmington, Delaware-headquartered Corteva Agrisciences Inc, a seed and farm chemicals firm, is reporting a partnership with farm technology and services provider Indigo Ag to expand its U.S. agricultural carbon credits program for the 2022 season. The Corteva Carbon Initiative would initially pay farmers $15 per acre for switching to practices that pollute less, use fewer pesticides, or grow crops that extract carbon from the atmosphere and lock it in the soil.

Corteva's two-crop pilot study in three states this year will be expanded to an 11-state program covering 17 different crops as part of the agreement. Using soil tests and farming data such as planting dates, seed kinds, fertilizer treatments, and weather, the software will predict how much carbon is trapped and sequestered.

Farmers must sign up for a minimum five-year term, with payments made progressively over that time to guarantee that carbon is not re-released if the soil is tilled, for example, Farmers will receive 75 pct of the credit's worth, with the remaining 25 pct going to the businesses to cover administrative costs

. Corteva, Inc. is a publicly traded, worldwide pure-play agriculture company that offers farmers around the world the industry's most comprehensive portfolio, including a well-balanced and diverse mix of seed, crop protection, and digital solutions aimed at increasing productivity and profitability.
