Truterra Launches TruCarbon™ Program

Jan 21, 2021

THE FINANCIAL REWARDS OF STEWARDSHIP JUST GOT BIGGER 


On-farm stewardship has always been a good investment, and it’s even better now. In 2021, you may be eligible to earn $20 per ton for the carbon that may already be sequestered in your fields. 
 

Who May Qualify: 

The best candidates for this industry-leading program are farmers who previously (within the past five years) adopted certain management practices demonstrated to increase soil carbon levels and can enter this information into the Truterra™ Insights Engine. These management practices may include complete no-till, strip till, reduced till and continuous soil cover (e.g. cover crops, double cropping, use of perennials). Due to the five-year look-back window of this offer, fields on which these practices were adopted more than five years ago would not qualify for this payment. 

Time Requirements: 

  • This offer will be based on historical practices only, with priority going to operations providing data on qualifying practices for up to five years back 
  • Future offers are anticipated to provide opportunities for farmers who have both recently (within the past two years) adopted these practices, or who are in the process of adopting them now 
  • Farmers enrolled in TruCarbon™ for 2021 may also qualify for potential future opportunities 

Data Requirements 

  • Soil sampling will be required and can be provided at no cost to you 
  • Three years data prior to practice change required for baseline 
  • Annual data reporting will be required for a period of 20 years for all fields enrolled in this offer to ensure continuity of carbon removal 
  • Initial data collection, as well as subsequent annual reporting, must be managed via the Truterra™ Insights Engine
