To receive money for soil carbon sequestration, farmers must confirm that their farming methods are environmentally friendly. Every company that sells carbon credits makes a list of requirements that a farmer needs to meet. The lists vary, but the basic principles are the same. Below are some of the challenges faced by companies that trade carbon credits and how OneSoil's technological solutions powered by machine learning algorithms can help those companies
: 1️⃣ Specifying the boundaries and acreage of the field (s) where eco-friendly farming methods will be used.
Yes, the company can request information about the field area directly from the farmer, but how can it verify the information? Some companies still send representatives to the fields to calculate the area and determine the payments. The process takes a lot of time and money and, in the long run, binds the business to one region, which prevents it from scaling.What OneSoil offers.
Quickly and easily confirming field boundaries and acreage based on satellite images. In fact, the OneSoil platform allows you to determine field boundaries with an accuracy of 5 m. We've used machine learning algorithms to identify all fields in Europe, North and South America, China, Japan, and Australia. You can see how the process works in the OneSoil app
