Agrology, a predictive agriculture company, has launched the Arbiter Carbon Monitoring System, a platform that continuously monitors and quantifies soil carbon flux for farmers. The system delivers critical data on soil carbon and health to growers on their mobile and desktop devices, allowing them to receive alerts for anomalies and complex challenges like soil carbon flux and soil microbiome health, the pinnacles of regenerative farming.
According to Adam Koeppel, Co-Founder and CEO of Agrology, “Sequestering, storing, and keeping carbon in the soil is the best way to rapidly and affordably remove atmospheric carbon. Agrology is helping farmers do just that.” The company aims to empower growers to comprehensively monitor carbon projects, own their carbon data, and use the data to offset their carbon footprints or earn money with carbon credits
Organic grower Braga Fresh and leading wineries Silver Oak and Emeritus Vineyards are already trialing the Arbiter system. Eric Moran, Braga Fresh’s vice president of environmental science and resources, says that Agrology’s Arbiter Carbon Monitoring System is the best tool they’ve seen to help them evaluate their regenerative trials.
The Agrology Arbiter Carbon Monitoring System has a variety of features that help growers monitor soil carbon flux, soil carbon changes, soil carbon respiration, soil carbon sequestration, and soil conditions. It continuously tracks soil carbon sequestration by evaluating soil carbon flux and then delivers that data to growers in real-time. The system gathers the highest quality carbon data from an entire project geography, enabling growers to know what is happening ecosystem-wide.
Agrology’s machine learning models synthesize data to monitor complex challenges like soil carbon flux and microbiome health. The company’s customers own their data and can pull it anytime from their individually encrypted storage using Agrology’s grower portal and data APIs.
The Agrology Arbiter Carbon Monitoring System is available as a monthly subscription service starting at around $600 per month. Agrology installs and maintains the Arbiter System, including all hardware, hardware replacements, software, and the Agrology mobile app. Additionally, customers own their data.
Agrology is a leading climate tech start-up and Public Benefit Corporation with a mission to help farmers adapt to and beat climate change with real-time analysis and predictive insights. The company’s platform consists of climate and carbon monitoring systems, both based on ground-truth data and machine learning. Agrology’s academic partners include UC Davis, CSU Monterey Bay, Huntington Farms, RCD of Monterey County, the University of California Cooperative Extension, the University of California Agriculture and Natural Resources, and Virginia Tech College of Agriculture and Life Sciences.
The launch of the Agrology Arbiter Carbon Monitoring System represents a significant step forward in helping farmers tackle climate change. With this system, growers can track and quantify soil carbon and receive real-time alerts for anomalies and complex challenges. The system also enables growers to monitor carbon projects, own their carbon data, and use the data to offset their carbon footprints or earn money with carbon credits. Agrology’s innovative approach has the potential to transform agriculture and make a significant contribution to the fight against climate change.
