Join agronomists and certified crop advisors across North America to empower and scale regenerative agriculture.
Mapping Adoption Practices
Soil health management incentives - both public and private - rely on monitored and quantifiable changes in conservation practice adoption. Regrow utilizes OpTIS, our remote sensing algorithm, to make monitoring globally scalable. We also use ground-truth data to validate the accuracy of this technology.
Together, we work to effectively track the adoption of conservation practices.
We rely on observations from agronomists, certified crop advisors and other agricultural experts to ensure accurate and robust data collection.

How It’s Done
The Sustainability Watch program is part of an ongoing public-private partnership between Regrow, The Nature Conservancy, the Conservation Technology Information Center, and the Foundation for Food and Agriculture Research. In this program, we use OpTIS to map sustainable practice adoption and support our findings with ground-truth data.
Sign onto the Sustainability Watch team. We’ll collect the documents necessary to compensate for your efforts.
Download the Sustainability Watch app on your iPad, iPhone or Android.
Survey 20-30 fields within driving distance & complete a simple survey regarding tillage practices and cover crops.
Submit a single invoice after your last visit, and you’ll receive payment for your efforts.
What You'll Receive
We provide stipends for data collectors conducting roadside surveys. We ask each data collector to perform up to 6 roadside surveys within their counties between November and July.
We provide data collectors with an introductory project overview and mobile app training. You’ll learn how to accept assignments, collect observations and take pictures of fields to ensure high quality data collection and a smooth experience.
You’ll always have support staff on hand to answer questions or provide guidance. Our customer support team is experienced with data collection efforts, and is here to help.
We take data privacy seriously. We do not ask you to provide any information about your clients. Rather, you’ll visit a set of random fields in your area to help us validate satellite observations.
