Australian Carbon Credit Units
SOIL CARBON FARMING
Soil carbon farming involves sequestering CO2 in agricultural soils. Australian farmers who register a soil carbon project with the Clean Energy Regulator will receive one Australian Carbon Credit Unit (ACCU) for every ton of CO2 removed from the atmosphere and stored in their soils.
Soil carbon farming can also benefit agricultural production via increased moisture retention and increased crop and pasture yields.
ALIGNING SOIL, PASTURE AND CARBON OBJECTIVES
Aligning eligible activities of a new soil carbon project with your production objectives is our speciality.
We can comprehensively assess your soil, pasture and carbon levels to determine the best eligible activity, which may include applying lime, gypsum, synthetic or organic fertilisers, changing stocking density or switching from permanent cropping to mixed pasture production.
If we get this alignment right, you can maximise your production and generate Australian Carbon Credit Units (ACCUs) at the same time.
“Precision Pastures manages all our annual fertiliser application, from collaborating on which rate to put on which paddock, to calculating the amount of fertilizer we have to order for the spread.”
Bald Blair Angus, Guyra, NSW
“We asked Precision Pastures to conduct a soil test program to work out how best to subdivide our country, and ensure we were applying the right fertiliser to the right areas, at the right rate. These recommendations meant a huge cost-saving”
“We are using Precision Pastures to undertake our carbon baseline sampling as a part of our Australian carbon sequestration project. They’re local, they’re knowledgeable, and they’re great to work with.”
