To achieve our vision we’re putting technology & science behind sustainable agriculture, and facilitate natural systems science to conservation agriculture.
We do this by focusing on the sequestration of soil carbon to increase the resilience of the landscape and introduce additional income streams for landholders.
As a global AgTech provider, we build the bridge between the carbon industry, regulators and those managing farm land. The Carbon Count Platform helps our customers simplify, streamline and fast–track soil carbon projects that meet regulatory requirements through a suite of innovative tools geared towards maximising profits.
Backed by leading research from the University of Sydney and strengthened by professionals with domain knowledge in agronomy, soil science, agribusiness, rural financial advice and a world class tech-team, the resources we are able to leverage and provide enable us to take our platform, our customers and the soil carbon industry to new heights globally.
With the Carbon Count Platform, it’s easy to manage a rewarding soil carbon project adhering to the standards of the Australian Government’s Carbon Farming Initiative.
We guide you through every step of the soil carbon project lifecycle, without you needing to understand legislative sample design or perform the complex mathematical equations and laborious paperwork involved in running a soil carbon project.
At Carbon Count we have domain knowledge not only around agribusiness but also IT. We’ve combined this expertise to deliver a platform that’s been designed with the most advanced technology in conjunction with the input, expertise and knowledge of scientists, environmentalists, agronomists and landholders.
Our proprietary Fast Adaptive Algorithm for Soil Testing (FAAST) algorithm offers regulatory approved sampling design and soil carbon measurement that is aligned with the Carbon Farming Initiative – Measurement of Soil Carbon Sequestration in Agricultural Systems Methodology 2018.
As the holder of this exclusive intellectual property, the Carbon Count Platform equips landholders and project managers with all necessary documentation to register for the Australian Government's Emissions Reduction Fund (ERF) and enter the Australian carbon trade market.
Soil Carbon Sequestration is a win:win situation for farming communities and the climate. It empowers farmers to leverage carbon as a powerful resource to secure the future–stable profitability of their land, diversify farm income by entering the carbon market and mitigate the effects of climate change on the planet and its communities.
In 2008 the faculty of Agriculture and Environment at the University of Sydney commenced research on carbon measurement. This research, led by Professor Alex McBratney, created a new type of geostatistics in which error defined the number and location of samples.
Three PhD projects were funded by the Australian Government and private companies from 2009 - 2013.
IP protection and government approval were pursued by the founding capital providers from 2013 until the successful release by the Australian Federal Government of the 'Carbon Credits' (Carbon Farming Institute - Measurement of Soil Carbon Sequestration in Agricultural Systems) methodology determination in 2018.
The University of Sydney Soil Carbon Measure Protocol, became the basis for the soil carbon measurement that underpins the regulation. In 2019 the right to the patent was transferred from the investors to Carbon Count Pty Ltd.
