Indigo Carbon supports farmers in adopting practices that are good for their farm and pays them for the carbon credits they generate.
Adding cover crops, reducing tillage and other practices can help benefit your soil and your bottom line.
And in the near future, through Indigo Carbon, increased soil organic matter or reduced greenhouse gas emissions from these practices can also generate verified carbon credits, which are increasingly in demand by buyers, such as major corporations.
How? Through photosynthesis.
Agricultural plants have the ability to economically pull
more carbon dioxide out of the atmosphere than any other technology.
Photosynthesis is the natural process by which plants absorb carbon dioxide from the atmosphere. Plants retain the carbon, using it to grow leaves, stems, and roots. They also release some of the carbon through their roots into the soil as simple sugars. This contributes to a healthy soil ecosystem, rich in nutrients. By adopting regenerative farming practices, farmers can lock down this carbon in the soil, rather than releasing it back into the atmosphere through practices such as tilling.
Bringing Indigo Carbon to Europe
We've launched Indigo Carbon in the US and have seen very positive grower response. In Europe, we are piloting Indigo Carbon with selected growers in 2020 in Germany.
