INCREASED FOOD SUPPLY VEGESOne of the biggest threats to global stability is the potential for food crises in poor countries.  Nearly one billion people around the world are extremely short of food and over one and a half billion people are short of water. Bio-agricultural solutions could be easily implemented in developing countries, providing an increased food and water supply.

EXTRA FARM INCOME   wheat For a 500 hectare farm a farmer can earn an extra $85,000/year (US) with additional benefits of land regeneration, reduced water needs and reduced pollution of soil, air and water. This is after farmers have paid all costs

COST EFECTIVE MEASURING EQUIPMENT MEASURING EQUIPMENT New technology has made measuring soil carbon, not only extremely accurate, but simple and cost effective, thus overcoming one of the major hurdles of an agricultural solution.


Economic Benefits

        The Bio-agriculture Solution is a Low Cost Solution

          Prof. R Lal, (leading soil carbon scholar)


Carbon sequestration through bio-agriculture can remove the same amount of carbon from the atmosphere for less than 1% of the cost of existing emission reduction methods.


  • Projected costs to reduce global emissions by 10% by 2020 are $250 billion per year.
  • Projected costs to convert 2.5% of global farmland per year to bio-agriculture (25% converted by 2020) are $7 billion per year.

The current economic climate threatens to reduce and delay efforts and investment in fighting climate change. The low cost of bio-agricultural farming practices allow for easy implementation, with significant benefits to all countries.

  Bio-agriculture Offers Economic Benefits to Farmers


sunflowersThe main economic benefit for farmers results from being paid carbon credits per tonne of CO2-e they sequester in the soil. Depending on the rate of payment and the amount of carbon squestered, farmers will recieve on average $200 per hectare per year.


Other economic benefits for farmers are;

  • Reducing land and yield loss from land degradation.
  • Using less water.
  • Substantially increasing land fertility and yields.
  • Cutting the use of chemical fertilisers.                                                    MORE


Through carbon credits paid for sequestered CO2-e, bio-agriculture could create financial benefits for the World of more than $4,400 billion over a ten year period.

  Other cost benefits of the bio-agriculture solution

land degradation


Health costs are projected to rise as a result of global warming. A recent US study expects health cost increases of 25% due to climate change. The bio-agricultural solution can dramatically reduce this cost by speeding up our emission reductions.


Land degradation is a crisis in waiting.

With a third of the world's agricultural land currently degraded, over time it will become harder and harder to grow enough food for us all. Food prices will rise, making survival for the poorest nations of the world more and more difficult.                                         MORE
