Standards providing assurance of soil health outcomes to facilitate investment in and adoption of soil health improvements. Early adopter pilots are underway.
SCI is developing an outcomes & science-based performance standard and measurement framework-built by and for brands, investors and farmers. The Standard seeks to provide a standardized way to monitor progress on soil health and carbon sequestration improvements. This Initiative was identified by this group of leaders as a necessary keystone missing from the current system that was needed for accelerating investment into measurable on farm progress in carbon sequestration and soil health across a broad spectrum of agricultural production systems. The Standard is agnostic to other certifications, and flexible enough to adapt to scientific and technological advances and enhance other standards already in use by farmers and food companies.
