We are creating an ecosystem that helps farmers discover and adopt regenerative practices, making farming sustainable. With a digital platform that tracks all farming activities even for small scale farmers, every small practice adds up. For example, replacing fixed-schedule spraying with need-based spraying. Or, providing alternatives to stubble burning and creating rich manure from crop residue. An aggregation based carbon farming model creates new income streams even for small scale farmers and ensures that good practices are rewarded. The additional income provides practical motivation for farmers to follow sustainable practices. Read more about The Carbon Program
We are bringing in information transparency by providing digitised traceability at every point in the crop cycle. Traceable practices give rise to legal, certified and measured carbon credits that corporations can purchase at a large scale. Credit monitoring via partnerships with certifying bodies ensure that credits are never resold.
We are developing initiatives at regional, national and international levels to promote sustainable practices as alternatives to unhealthy stubble burning, residue discarding and other pollution causing practices. When we launch these initiatives, we look forward to your support and participation as an individual, a corporation or an institution.

We take data privacy very seriously. Enrolling with us means that you’re accepting our data security agreement. We do not own your data nor will we seek ways to monetize it beyond carbon removal. We will only ever share your data with third parties for the purposes of quantification, how many credits to issue, and verification (sharing your data with the authorized verifier to review & verify your practices and carbon removal claims. If you send your data through a third party (like a farm management software platform), they would have access to your data for which you can share your consent on mail with us. Nurture will work with you closely to gather required data & documentation necessary to facilitate quantification.
In addition to geospatial field boundaries, we are looking for information around planting and harvesting, tillage intensity, fertilizer use, organic matter additions, irrigation, liming, and burning.
If you lease or co-own land that you intend to enroll into the program, you will need to be assigned title to the ownership of the future credits so that you can sell them. You can work with a legal professional for this. In order to register these projects, you will need to prove that you’ve secured all the necessary arrangements.
Not necessarily, you can decide which fields you want to sign up during the Pilot enrollment phase. You will be able to make a field-by-field decision on what moves ahead to the verification process when the time comes to enroll your project
From our perspective, you can be in as many programs as you like that help you add value back to the farm. The only thing you cannot do is double-sell the carbon on that field. It is perfectly OK to get paid for your credit by one person, and share the data with another program that is interested in that information for carbon accounting or supply chain tracking reasons, but you cannot list and/or get paid for the same carbon benefits in more than one registry.
Before your CRTs are issued and are available to sell, we require verification of the adoption of your regenerative practices in the project. This step is done by a third-party auditor who is accredited in verifying greenhouse gas emissions. The best way to prepare for interim verifications is to organize your records with the data we require and take time-stamped, geo-located pictures (from your phone) that document your practices.
The economic downturn caused by COVID-19 has seen a decline in allowances prices in various ETSs. This is to be expected with allowances prices being a function of demand and supply.
The timeline for credits to be sold is expected to be immediate and fast selling.
You are a US based grower and you have adopted conservation tillage practices, planted cover crops, incorporated organic matter through manure or mulching, changed planting or crop rotations
