Earth is an intelligently designed carbon sequestration engine. Our planet’s rainforests act as its lungs, and its soil acts as its skin. Reengineering these systems to optimize the carbon cycle is the most effective solution we have to create a sustainable future.

Farmland is Four Times Bigger Than The Amazon
Agricultural practices have the potential to help or harm our planet more than the Amazon.
4.25 billion acres on Earth are farmland. Implementing regenerative farming practices can empower Earth to store more carbon in less time than any manmade technology ever could.

For Regenerative Farming
The Heartland team has identified 3 practical regenerative agriculture practices that will unlock carbon credit markets and revenue opportunities for farmers.
Tracks Not Tires
Soil compaction is a persistent problem with heavy mechanized equipment. Plants do not grow well in compressed soil. Farmers who adopt tracks instead of tires reduce the amount of compression on the ground.
Ditch Your Plow
One of the most common ways to eliminate soil compression is with a deep plow, which can dig 36" into the ground. By switching to a vertical tiller, you only disrupt 3" of soil and preserve more than 80% of the organic matter removed by the plow.
Cover Your Soil
Cover crops are more important than simply preventing soil erosion. During cold winters, they act as a canopy for organic life. This ensures healthy soils while reducing nitrate runoff into local water supplies.
Stronger Farms For Everyone
Unlocking The Sustainable Future We Need And Deserve
Regenerative agriculture can empower Earth to store more carbon in the soil than any technology.
We work with global brands and their suppliers to understand the opportunity and impact of carbon farming.
Looking To The Future
The Electric Vehicle Transition Brings Uncertainty To Ethanol
There are 40 million acres of corn farmed for ethanol here in America. By 2030, every major car manufacturer has committed to only making electric vehicles. This will create a significant reduction in the demand for ethanol.
We need to prepare farmers with alternative and profitable row crops.
With a new crop comes opportunities for optimization.
