Frequently Asked Questions

Agricultural carbon credits are verified carbon dioxide (CO2) tons, or an equivalent amount of another greenhouse gas (GHG), avoided and removed from the atmosphere because of the implementation of regenerative agricultural land management activities on cropland and pastureland. Agricultural carbon credits are considered a Natural Climate Solution (NCS), the conservation, restoration, and improved management of ecosystems to reduce or remove greenhouse gases from the atmosphere. Implementing these regenerative agricultural practices that create Agoro Carbon credits lead to increased carbon sequestration rates in the soil, reduced soil disturbance and erosion, increased crop residue, improved water management, and improved forage quality and quantity. Additional benefits include improvements in soil, water, and air quality, biological diversity enhancement, the provision of natural habitats, and ecosystem functioning.

Anybody who wants to empower growers and ranchers to implement regenerative agricultural land management practices that reduce and remove carbon emissions at scale, enhance agricultural resiliency, and improve a host of additional climate benefits such as soil health, water quality, and biodiversity can buy Agoro Carbon credits. Agoro Carbon credit buyers get a high-quality, nature-based solution that demonstrates climate leadership and can be used to meet emissions reduction goals on the path to Net-Zero.

The regenerative agricultural land management practices implemented within the Agoro Carbon program lead to both the reduction and removal of carbon credits. However, the vast majority of Agoro Carbon credits are removal credits.

Agoro Carbon participants implement a package of regenerative agricultural land management practices. On croplands, these activities include but are not limited to reduced and zero tillage and cover cropping. On pastureland, activities involve implementing nutrient management, increased species diversity, rotational grazing, and other regenerative practices.

Soil, water, social, financial, and biodiversity. There is ample research that shows that the regenerative practices supported by Agoro Carbon can lead to better water use efficiency, reduced soil erosion, increased biodiversity, and increased crop resilience to extreme weather events.

Agoro Carbon credits are additional and encompass strong permanence characteristics contribute to a variety of benefits beyond carbon reduction and sequestration, and are reinforced by a robust MRV framework underpinned by physical soil sample measurements for baselining and verification, and enhanced through precise modeling.
