Agricultural carbon credits are verified carbon dioxide (CO2) tons, or an equivalent amount of another greenhouse gas (GHG), avoided and removed from the atmosphere because of the implementation of regenerative agricultural land management activities on cropland and pastureland. Agricultural carbon credits are considered a Natural Climate Solution (NCS), the conservation, restoration, and improved management of ecosystems to reduce or remove greenhouse gases from the atmosphere. Implementing these regenerative agricultural practices that create Agoro Carbon credits lead to increased carbon sequestration rates in the soil, reduced soil disturbance and erosion, increased crop residue, improved water management, and improved forage quality and quantity. Additional benefits include improvements in soil, water, and air quality, biological diversity enhancement, the provision of natural habitats, and ecosystem functioning.
