Agtech firm Agreena has announced that its soil carbon platform covers some two million hectares across 17 European countries. More than a thousand farmers are now using the AgreenaCarbon platform.
“Carbon sequestration in agriculture is one of the top solutions to scale climate action according to the IPCC, but it can involve high upfront costs for farmers. Agreena leverages cutting-edge science and technology to convert climate-friendly farming efforts into high-quality carbon removal credits, delivering vital additional revenue to farmers,” said Julie Koch Fahler, co-founder and COO of Agreena.
The platform is backed up by the company’s technologies. In 2022, it acquired measurement, reporting and verification systems, using remote sensing and AI. Coupling soil sampling and field data with machine learning and computer vision techniques, the company is reportedly building soil carbon data at scale.
To ensure integrity, an independent third party validates the data prior to issuing carbon credits, which can be kept or sold on the voluntary carbon market. This confirms emission reductions and carbon removals have taken place.
