Understanding Your Estimate

What impacts the credits I generate?

  • Sequestration rates vary based on crop type, weather and management practice
  • Cover crops sequester carbon more consistently year-to-year
  • Reduced tillage is slow to sequester carbon but accelerates
    over a 10-year period

How are credits priced?

  • Corteva guarantees $20/credit, with the potential for up to $30/credit this year
  • The value of carbon credits will increase with market demand
  • Carbon credits are measured, certified and sold through Indigo Ag’s carbon buyer network
