Soil Stratification's Role in the Ag Carbon Market show art Soil Stratification's Role in the Ag Carbon Market

Carbon Farming Podcast

Let's zoom in on a specific and very crucial stage of the ag generation process - the role of soil stratification. First off, what is soil stratification or also referred to as “soil strata?” Well, here is a little preview: Soil stratification is the process of dividing farm or ranch land into different areas that represent similar soil organic carbon to efficiently sample soil with the most accurate results. What does stratification look like? And how is it related to the monitoring, reporting and verification of carbon credits? Does AI and remote sensing play a part? We cover all that...

Carbon Farming Podcast

Iowa-based Agronomist and Strategic Accounts Manager, Clay Craighton, joins us to chat through the newest way farmers can get involved in the ag carbon market - and it's all about cover cropping with legumes. Cover crops improve soil health and help keep carbon “locked in” to our soil. In this episode, Clay discusses the ins and outs of generating ag carbon credits by diversifying cover crops with legumes, and so much more: What are legumes Legacy conservation growers can participate  How adding legumes to the mix works Types of legume species Application type Farmers that have been...
