The data-fuel programme integrates infrastructure with expertise to provide growers with intelligent GHG management tools and superior market access
Digital farming solutions provider Farmers Edge has partnered with Radicle Group to create a new, high-tech carbon credit programme powered by real-time field data.
Radicle Group is a developer of agricultural carbon credits in North America.
The partnership will combine digital infrastructure and proven carbon credit expertise to develop a precise programme that offers growers with field-level sustainability scores, intelligent greenhouse gas (GHG) management tools and better market access.
Farmers Edge and Radicle will use their data-driven, automated approach to transform the experience for growers, from collection to reporting payouts.
The project will be rolled out in multiple phases in Canada
As per the partnership terms, the project will be rolled out in several phases, beginning with streamlining existing programmes in Canada and then expanding into the US market.
Radicle will manage credit development process focusing on maximisation of carbon credits value for growers.
Farmers Edge will provide technology for carbon management with tools to measure sustainability metrics, quantify soil health, tracking agronomic practices and identifying which carbon credits growers can quality.
Farmers Edge CEO and co-founder Wade Barnes said: “Our unique digital infrastructure can validate sustainability metrics in near real-time, reducing risk and creating more market stability for all stakeholders. We want to help growers get rewarded for their land stewardship without making them take on all the extra work that’s typically required, and this high-tech program does just that.”
Radicle Group president Alastair Handley said: “We’re excited to be working with Farmers Edge to create a system that will make it easier for growers to participate in environmental markets.
“This new market access will provide an additional incentive for growers to implement sustainable solutions that sequester carbon in the soil. Reducing emissions while providing food more sustainably to consumers is a reason to celebrate, and growers should be rewarded financially.”
