Building soil carbon is key to growing a healthy crop and your bottom line

Retain moisture

Every 1% increase in organic matter can result in up to 25k gallons of available soil water per acre.

Improve nutrient uptake

Every 1% of soil organic matter can release 10-20 lbs. of plant-available N, 1-2 lbs. of P, and up to 0.8 lb. of sulfur per acre/per year.

Boost crop yield

Every 1% increase in organic matter can deliver potential crop-yield increases of about 12%.

CarbonBuilder restores balance in the carbon cycle

To restore soil organic carbon, farmers must balance the carbon input and output functions of the carbon cycle. CarbonBuilder restores a healthy microbial fungi population at the roots which is essential to greater carbon capture.

Farmers need an easier way to rebuild soil carbon

To rebuild soil organic carbon, many farmers introduce regenerative agricultural practices that limit soil disturbance, keep biomass and residue in the soil, and limit the exposure of soil organic carbon to oxygen.

While practices like reduced tillage and cover crops have proven payoffs like improved soil health and crop resilience, they aren’t applicable in every farming system, soil or region. They also come with risk and cost, and take time.

CarbonBuilder helps farmers build stable soil carbon, at scale, without the risks from introducing new practices

Build carbon at scale

Using CarbonBuilder microbial technology, farmers can see significant increases in organic soil carbon starting in year one.

Maintain your practices

Continue using the practices that make the most agronomic and economic sense to your operation. Simply add CarbonBuilder at planting.

Boost soil health

CarbonBuilder increases total organic carbon, to support better soil structure, nutrient retention and water holding capacity, for greater in-season soil productivity.
