Why Do You Need My Data?

When farmers and ranchers enroll in a carbon program, one step in the process is data collection. Why? Data collected at the farm or ranch level is used to gain an understanding of the current operation and evaluate the current and future sustainability impact through sequestering soil organic carbon. The data points collected help to validate the influence an operation can have through sequestering soil organic carbon

At Agoro Carbon Alliance there is a dedicated Grower Success Team that helps farmers and ranchers collect data as a part of their carbon program participation. Later in the process, a third-party soil sampler will visit the operation to ensure accuracy at no cost to the producer.  The key to carbon cropping and sustainable practice changes is verifying carbon is sequestered thanks to the conservation ag practices implemented by our growers and the data to back it. At Agoro Carbon, we register our initiatives with Verra Standards to produce high-quality and high-impact carbon credits. This requires three years of historical information to meet qualification standards.

The data points needed to generate carbon credits depends on what conservation practice a farmer or rancher selects. When producers join the Agoro Carbon Alliance, they can expect a dedicated team that will help as much or little as desired to collect the data needed to start their carbon journey. Below are examples of some of the data points that may be asked of a producers:
