Indigo Carbon helps you get paid for adopting regenerative farming practices and drawing down carbon into your soil. As you capture carbon, enterprises and individuals can buy carbon offsets through Indigo Carbon.
The programme is part of the Terraton Initiative, a global effort that seeks to remove one trillion tons of carbon dioxide from the atmosphere and use it to enrich our agricultural soils.
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.
- Regenerative practices can improve both soil health and the profitability of your farm.
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. Let us know if you're interested in Indigo Carbon. We're excited to work together.
