Data Collection

Does this program involve additional paperwork and time?

You need to provide us with initial historical farm management data, following that our experts will handle the remaining steps of the process.

What's the method for measuring carbon data?

We carry out annual Soil Organic Carbon (SOC) and Bulk Density (BD) tests, in addition to carbon modeling, to acquire a comprehensive spectrum of data. Samples are collected at a depth of 12 to 20 inches for BD and 12 inches for SOC each year, ensuring an exceptionally precise carbon measurement. This entire process comes at no expense to you.

Who handles the soil sampling?

Groundwork BioAg is responsible for soil sampling!

Payment Process

What is the payment method for growers?

Growers receive up to 70% of net proceeds through a revenue-sharing model designed to optimize their earnings.
