GET PAID TO BUILD SOIL HEALTH.

Farmers can now be paid an additional $5 to $30 per acre per year to store carbon in their soils.


Why would you get paid for soil carbon?

With growing concern over the carbon emissions, large organizations are paying farmers to sequester CO2. They’re doing this for marketing and compliance.

Good news: Building healthy soil through regenerative agriculture happens to be one of the most powerful ways to sequester CO2 from the atmosphere.


A Win-Win

As a farmer, you get the real benefits of:

  • Improved crop yields

  • Nutrient dense food and relative feed value premiums

  • Increased water holding capacity

  • Extra income for every ton of carbon you store in your soil

Buyers gets the benefits of:

  • Marketing to their consumer base on how they are innovating

  • Hedging against a carbon tax

  • Meeting compliance regulations

You may already be sequestering carbon with:

No-till

Cover cropping

Compost Application

Crop Rotations

…and many more


How does this work?

Mad Agriculture will connect you to a carbon market dedicated to valuing soil carbon you've built in the past 5 years and continue to build. It's called Nori. We will calculate, verify and help you sell your soil carbon to buyers in the form of a carbon credit, known as a Certified Removal Certificate (CRC), which is equivalent to 1 metric ton of CO2 stored in soil.


We only get paid if you do, charging a 15% share of the carbon credits. You get 85% of the profits, without the hassle.


Who else is doing this?

There are farmers all over the country getting involved from small scale vegetable farms to 40,000 acre wheat farmers. We specialize in broad acre farms. That’s exactly where these projects become economically feasible due to the scale and impact of carbon removal at large acreages (500+ acres).

A dive into Lewis Family Farm

LFF is one of the farms we’re working with to implement a regenerative farm plan. This 354 acre farm has been able to take their soil organic matter (SOM) from 1.32% to 2.76% over the past 6 years. That’s equivalent to around 2 tons of carbon dioxide being sequestered per acre per year.

Your probably wondering, how does that stack up against my farm? How much is that worth?

Soil Organic Matter Increase

Over 6 years, this graph shows the increase of SOM and SOC on Lewis Family farm from using regenerative practices in combination with compost application and perennial alfalfa.

Additional Revenue Per Year

The price point the carbon market is trading at will determine the amount of additional revenue you'll receive per acre per year. This shows scenarios for Lewis Family Farm.
 

Lewis Family Farm will be able to make an additional $3,500 to $21,000 per year using the Nori marketplace, it’s just a matter of getting there.
