Introducing Agoro Carbon’s Grower Success Team
We offer our farmer and rancher alliance members access to the Grower Success team. A unique team made up of highly trained agronomists who specialize in crop and livestock production, several of which are farmers and ranchers themselves. In order to truly make our carbon program farmer and rancher centered we invested in a team who’s sole goal is to help simplify the carbon generation process for our producers after they sign a contract. The Grower Success team works side by side with our alliance members to understand what data is required, coordinate the soil-sampling process, communicate carbon measurements, and answer any questions that might arise along the way.
On day 1 or day 3,650 in the Agoro Carbon program, whenever our farmers
and ranchers have questions regarding practice changes and agronomic
techniques related to improving soil health and carbon storage, a dedicated
local Grower Success team member is available
Supporting Our Farmers’ & Ranchers’ After Enrollment
We help our alliance members understand what data is required and enable them to provide information as efficiently as possible.
Let us coordinate the soil-sampling process between our farmers and ranchers and the third-party soil samplers.
Our members select the support level most helpful (quarterly, bi-quarterly, yearly) while reaching out for help on anything between.
A Point Of Contact You’ll Know By Name
Frequently Asked Questions.
After signing the Contract, a GST agronomist local to your state/region will be assigned to you and will be your go-to contact with Agoro Carbon. This person will be the main point of contact for you
in supporting the implementation of the practices and the annual collection of all data. You’ll know our names and faces, and have a consistent contact you can reach out to with questions with regard
to the carbon markets and the practices that are being implemented. All of our team is well versed in transitioning to these conservation practices, and are more than prepared to answer questions and help with any challenges a farmer or rancher may face.
In addition to our ongoing support, we will conduct regular in-person meetings, including farm visits, to keep our boots on the ground, help our producers measure their success, address any concerns or challenges they may face, and investigate solutions to these.
After the Contract is signed, an agronomist from the Grower Success Team (GST) will work with the grower to collect a 3-year historical data set which will be used to create a baseline together with the soil samples explained in the Monitoring Plan (see page 14). Once the historical data has been collected, monitoring data will be collected on a yearly basis following practice implementation (see pages 7-13). For row crops, this includes information on tillage, planting, harvest, chemical and fertilizer applications, and irrigation. For pasture management, it includes grazing dates, herd size, irrigation, fertilizer, etc. Information such as yield data is also collected to ensure that our carbon program is not drastically reducing yields. Much of this information is required to establish carbon baselines in your soil and for the accurate calculation of carbon credits according to the carbon standard methodology. Without correct and accurate yearly data, Agoro Carbon cannot ensure credit issuance.
We offer complimentary agronomic support from day 1 through year 10 – from a real person, via phone, email, and on-site visits.
