OMAHA, NEB. — Scoular has signed an agreement with Regrow to provide measurement reporting and verification for Scoular’s regenerative agriculture sourcing program.
Regrow provides science-based GHG measurement, impact reporting and program verification to reduce greenhouse gas emissions.
Using remote sensing technology and its 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. The program will generate climate smart wheat and corn for food production. Producers will be incentivized for new and continued adoption of regenerative ag 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,” said Manal Elarab, chief operating officer of Regrow. “This collaboration demonstrates Scoular’s commitment to implementing regenerative practices through its supply chain in a farmer-focused, scalable and measurable way. We’re thrilled to partner with Scoular and support their program.”
Regenerative agriculture is the system of practices that can increase the carbon sequestered by soil, which enhances soil health and reduces greenhouse gas emissions. The process 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.
Regrow’s Ag Resilience platform monitors 1.3 billion acres across four continents equivalent to more than 10% of the world’s arable land, and supports practice changes by growers that are forecasted to abate more than 598,000c tonnes of CO₂e. Regrow’s industry partners include Nutrien, BASF, Cargill, General Mills, Kellanova (formerly part of Kellogg Co.) and Oatly.
