Carbon projects are expensive. A lot of that is due to the complexity of the governance and measurement requirements involved. Choosing the right software to use is all about ROI and reducing this cost. When a user develops a soil carbon project, they must take a series of steps to comply with registration.
Today marks World Soil Day, probably the most exciting day in my calendar (being the founder of a software company that maps and measures soil). This year our announcement makes it even more special. Today we launch our mission to help 1 million farmers sequester 1 billion tonnes of CO2 from the atmosphere by 2025, roughly equivalent to removing 217 million cars from the road in that same time.
Over the last few months I’ve been to a few Agtech and agricultural industry events in Melbourne and Sydney (including Agcatalyst, complete with broccoli latte’s and a virtual reality farm-experience). I’ve come across a bunch of amazing start-ups looking to revolutionise agriculture. Most of them have brilliant start-ups that, if they can execute well, will probably disrupt the industry for the better.
