Farmers are leading the way in sequestering carbon

Farmers around the globe are leading the way in scaling sustainable practices and sequestering carbon. We’re here to highlight early adopters, and to help share those practices with others around the globe. Together, we can make climate positive agriculture productive, profitable, environmentally beneficial, and equitable.

Farmers and ranchers rely on a wide range of trusted advisors to successfully navigate the agriculture industry. The Climate Positive Leaders Program recognizes those important relationships, requiring third party organizations including grower groups, nonprofits, universities, and other technical assistance providers to nominate growers who they have seen successfully implement climate positive practices.

If you are a qualifying organization and would like to nominate an eligible farmer, please email climatepositiveleaders@corteva.com.

Your Opportunity: Making a Difference at Scale

What climate positive practices are you using to sequester carbon while maintaining yields? We’re recognizing and awarding select farmers in the US, Canada, Brazil, Argentina, Germany, France, Australia and Kenya for their efforts in implementing, scaling and teaching climate positive practices in ways that are profitable and measurable. Because when you shine a light on your experiences, you can make a difference beyond your own acres.

What’s In It For You?

This recognition program, in partnership with the Global Farmer Network and the Rattan Lal Carbon Management Sequestration Center (CMSAC) at the Ohio State University, is designed to uplift the voices of farmers like you around the world who are implementing and sharing climate positive practices. We'll amplify your successful experiences with the intention of accelerating the broad adoption of those practices where applicable. Plus, we will connect you with business, research, agronomy, and agriculture leaders, with the opportunity to share your practices and experience across our global platform. Finally, we'll help verify the soil health impacts with science through soil sampling, carbon sequestration measurement, and robust interactive discussions with some of the world’s leading experts on agriculture and greenhouse gas emissions.
