Carbon credits create revenue to offset the uncertainty that comes with implementing operational change.
By enrolling in the Agoro Carbon credit program, farmers and ranchers gain an experienced partner to share the risk of adopting new farming practices, and add a source of income. Demand for carbon credits is projected to exceed supply over the next several decades, putting growers in a unique position to capitalize on the opportunity.
Payments are made for new tons of carbon captured (above the baseline) and are measured in ton (equivalent to 2,205 pounds). A per-ton price is established for each payment method, and allows for market price appreciation during the length of the contract.
Beyond the revenue generated from selling carbon credits, farmers and ranchers have the potential to benefit from long-term productivity improvements brought about by conservation practices and healthier soils.
Make Practice Changes & Get Paid to Improve Your Soil
Row Crop Practices
It is well known that soil conservation practices drive productivity and boost your farm’s bottom line. Now, they can also generate carbon credits, opening a new source of income.
Limited or eliminating soil disturbances
Incorporating off season crops to improve soil fertility
Optimized use of fertilizers
Pasture & Range Practices
Sound pasture management drives productivity, animal health, and operational resiliency. When you implement certain practice changes, you can also generate carbon credits that deliver supplemental income for your ranch.
Altering stocking rate and grazing days improves yield and forage intake, while improving soil carbon.
Adding a species to your ranch can improve yield, carbon storage, and
Judicious use of N-containing fertilizer helps optimize carbon storage, boost yield potential, and improve forage.

“I explored several carbon programs with my advisor and ended up signing with Agoro, because they provided the best explanation of carbon markets and offered the most attractive carbon payment structure that helped offset some of the upfront costs of adopting soil-health practices. The opportunity to receive long-term carbon income for my farm operation while improving soil-health were key factors in my decision.”

“What I was wanting was something that would provide extra cash flow to the operation, but also not hinder the management of the operation. Agoro Carbon was just a perfect fit for us.”
Agoro Carbon Scientist
“Agoro Carbon brings long-term value to a ranch system by starting from below the ground up. We help to implement management practices that build soil health through organic matter storage, soil microbe biodiversity and activity and water holding capacity. Soil health translates into higher forage yield and quality which leads to healthier animals and more profit at sales time. Through building soil health the rancher invests in their long-term legacy and ensures that the ranch will be profitable in the future and can be passed on to
