Let's Start The Conversation

Whether you have a sales inquiry, need help with a product or service, or any other issue, we want to connect you with the information as quickly as possible.

Thanks for submitting!

  • What is carbon sequestration or removal?
    One tonne of carbon dioxide (CO2) that has been removed from the atmosphere for a minimum of 10 years represents a carbon removal.
  • What kind of information do I need to submit?
    3 Years history on land management practice information and present season’s planting and harvesting dates, tillage dates and types, cover crop dates and types, fertiliser amount, application and types, planting and termination methods, and organic amendments.
  • Carbon credits - How much are they worth?
    The price of carbon credits depends on supply and demand. ECORISE will handle bringing the carbon credits to the market and ensure they are sold for the best price. The price depends on verification and administration costs and also on what buyers are willing to pay. It absolutely depends on the situation and use case of each and how many carbon offsets a farm can create. Additionally, farms save money from optimised fuel and fertiliser use. You can estimate your earnings potential once an audit has been completed.
  • What do I need to do to be eligible for getting paid for carbon credits?
    Apply or advance at least one new carbon farming practice: 1) Adding cover crops, 2) Increasing cover crop diversity and/or growth period, 3) Reduce tillage and fertilizer use, 4) Diversify your crop rotation. By using your management information, ECORISE can determine an overall reduction in greenhouse gas emissions on your farm and an increase in total carbon sequestered.
  • Do I have to use ECORISE software when I’m in the carbon program?
    By using the ECORISE farm management software, relevant data and tasks (crop rotation, fertilizer and fuel use) are entered which will report on your progress in creating Carbon Removal Units (CRU’s). The farmer doesn’t need to use the full program to manage their farm. There will be a special ECORISE FMS package for carbon farmers with no interest in the full software solution.
  • What happens next after I sign up for the carbon program?
    You will work with a soil sampling company and create a soil sampling plan (which fields and how many samples) for the carbon farming project. Baseline soil samples will be taken from the fields that are enrolled into the project. By using the ECORISE farm management software, relevant data and tasks (crop rotation, fertilizer and fuel use) are entered which will report on your progress in creating Carbon Removal Units (CRU’s). As outlined in the carbon farming practice plan, you will start implementing regenerative actions based on your best efforts. It is your choice which practices you will implement and how well you implement them. There is the option to sign up for the Carbon Consulting service from ECORISE. This service will help you get the best results across 1) farm profitability, 2) crop yield and 3) carbon credit income. We offer special benefits if you become a Carbon Consulting customer. Carbon credits can only be created after each round of soil sampling (every 3-5 years), but certain buyers might be willing to pre-purchase credits from farmers.
  • How to become a carbon farmer and reduce atmospheric carbon?
    Enhance your soil by sequestering more carbon. Add more legumes when rotating crops. Plant Cover crops and under-crops. Leave straw and/or animal manure on the field. Keep more carbon in the soil - Reduce Emissions. Minimize or no tilling. Manage compaction of soil. Optimal and precise mineral fertilization. Reduce fuel use where possible.
  • Will my farm have to get a full carbon footprint audit?
    Yes, this is managed by ECORISE and specialists trained in carbon agronomy.
  • How do carbon credits get created?
    Carbon credits are created when the farm or carbon project can demonstrate and prove it generated carbon benefits over the baseline, and the results are measured, verified and assessed.
  • What is a carbon credit?
    A carbon offset purchased by a company is one way to reduce their environmental impact and is known as a carbon credit. As companies or buyers make large-scale commitments to drastically reduce their carbon footprint, they want to purchase carbon credits – which represent greenhouse gases (GHG) removed or avoided – to drive positive environmental impact and change far beyond what they are capable of today within their own business sphere.
  • What actions or changes do I need to make on the farm?
    1) Reduce fertilizer use (reducing N or switching to injection). 2) Eliminating or reducing tillage. 3) Adding cover or under-crops. - For the first time, - extending the duration, - diversifying your mix 4) Diversifying your crop rotation
