In regenerative agriculture, carbon insetting is when farmers choose practices that lead to carbon sequestration and a reduction in greenhouse gas emissions. Practices like low and no-till, cover cropping and precision nitrogen application all contribute to higher carbon insetting.
Farmers represent a vast number of small enterprises, each having its own carbon footprint.
In order to successfully build carbon insetting into a large number of growers, a scalable solution is necessary. Scalability of credit insetting is achieved through CIBO’s modeling approach, where mechanistic and statistical models are applied to grower practices to accurately calculate carbon footprint without the need for on-site soil sampling.
