The companies announced today that they have signed an agreement for Regrow to be the MRV (measurement, reporting, verification) partner for Scoular’s regenerative agriculture sourcing program. Regrow enables companies in the agriculture supply chain to support net-zero objectives through science-based GHG measurement, impact reporting, and program verification to reduce greenhouse gas emissions.
Regenerative agriculture is the system of practices that can increase the carbon sequestered by soil, which enhances soil health and reduces greenhouse gas emissions. This decreases Scope 3 footprints for downstream customers, such as flour mills, livestock production and consumer packaged goods companies. Additionally, these practices encourage biodiversity and water conservation. Transitioning to regenerative agriculture requires a transparent, multifaceted approach, and both farmers and corporations are indispensable to its success in building resilient farming systems to protect the future food supply.
Using industry-leading remote sensing technology and their globally applied, calibrated and validated soil carbon model, Regrow’s Agriculture Resilience Platform aggregates field-level insights to generate credible and verifiable environmental outcomes data. Regrow’s “farmer-first” technology measures field-level resilient agriculture practice changes, tracks progress in real-time, and confirms regenerative practice adoption at scale.
Scoular will launch the program in Spring 2024 with producers at select grain handling facilities. This program will generate climate smart wheat and corn for food production. Producers will be incentivized for new and continued adoption of regenerative ag practices, meeting growers where they are with a range of eligible practices.
“Scoular specializes in unique supply chain solutions, and I’m excited that regenerative sourcing is another offering we are delivering to our customers,”
said Beth Stebbins, customer sustainability manager at Scoular.
“Transforming agriculture has the most profound impact on climate change. This collaboration demonstrates Scoular's commitment to implementing regenerative practices through its supply chain in a farmer-focused, scalable, and measurable way,” said Regrow COO Manal Elarab.
“We’re thrilled to partner with Scoular and support their program.”
