Both carbon buyers and landowners alike have many questions about how soil carbon storage works. Despite the complexities of the natural process, for people, it’s very simple: we stand back and let nature work as intended.
We know logging and tracking all the details for your ranch can be difficult, which is why we designed our system to do the heavy lifting for you.
I sat down to nerd out with Clay at Working Cows Podcast last week. We talked about what we’re seeing at PastureMap from the ranch businesses we serve. I shared a few of the best ranch management practices that we’re seeing from the ranches that we serve.
We interviewed Dr. Rebecca Ryals at UC Merced, one of the leading scientists who worked with Dr. Wendy Silver on soil carbon measurements at the Marin Carbon Project. Dr Ryals explains that there is quite a lot of variation and dispute in the scientific community for how to measure soil carbon stocks.
We hope this global milestone builds similar momentum in North America to move towards soil carbon credits for regenerative grazing and carbon sequestration.
Soil carbon represents a massive opportunity to help farmers and ranchers improve the health of their grasslands and sequester carbon. According to Project Drawdown, managed grazing and silvopasture practices have the potential to sequester over 47 gigatons of carbon by 2050.
Many of us in the soil health movement like to think of ourselves as regenerative businesses. But a regenerative mindset isn’t only about land, animals, and plants.
