New Income Trend:
Carbon Farming

DGB creates accessible and cost-effective carbon projects for landowners, while helping to establish a permanent and sustainable income system for land. Contact us to learn more about the carbon project and working with the DGB.

How does soil store carbon?

Soil organic carbon is actually the carbon stored in the soil as a part of the soil matter, as well as plant and animal matter. There are various stages of carbon in the soil. It means that the carbon does some processes in the soil, as it can prove to be dangerous to the environment. However, there are some positive sides of the story, meaning the carbon stored in the soil can indicate plant growth, with which produce growth is indicated too. Most importantly, there is a reverse process as well. The growth of a plant indicates organic carbon in the soil. Both the soil and the plants can benefit from it being carbon-rich. 


How much can I get paid?

It mostly depends on the land's data and nature. Some companies in the agriculture industry work towards increasing the soil in carbon, from which they can benefit by selling it and making profits. Also it's important to increase the use of products that grow in carbon-rich soil, balancing it with the use of organic soil for other products.


We are proud to prove, together with the project landowner, that quality, verified, carbon farming from native forest conservation can provide a good economic alternative to deforestation. To avoid further deforestation in the Paraguayan Chaco, we need solutions that can be implemented immediately, can scale and are bankable for all parties involved.

How DGB do it?

We support farmers' transition to farming by making it easier for them to generate carbon credits for regenerative applications. This facilitation process provides financing solutions and agricultural support. Also It ranges from the verification of carbon credits to the sale of carbon credits.


Get to know

Contact us and find out if you are eligible to participate in our project processes.


Share your data

Meet our expert team with whom you can share your farm management data. Based on your farm managements and lands, we together create data-driven plans for implementation.


Master plan

We apply the models to establish a baseline of soil organic carbon in your land and potential carbon sequestration through planned regenerative applications.


Get paid

We generate a carbon credit, document all the outputs of your land, thereby providing a new sustainable income system.


Improve Your Soil & Land

There are many creative ways that soil organic carbon can be implemented within. The opportunities are endless. You can discover new uses for soil organic carbon, depending on the costs, effects, ecological reasons, among other factors. Here are some important points for how you can make the soil more productive with carbon farming:

System Management

System management is perhaps the one that comes as the most reasonable one. This includes cropping systems for the green manure, compost extracts, manipulating with livestock, and many other ways to help you manage the soil organic carbon. These systems have shown the best results so far. Using the land properly, you can find more on the positive side.

Legumes and Perennials

Legumes and perennials have also shown some great results. In fact, there is a pasture system or when a rotation on the legumes is done, the biomass gets increased.

Conventional Practices

Conventional agriculture includes monoculture cropping, tilling, chemical pesticides, and more. These can have significant negative sides on the soil, but within these conventional practices, we've found eco-friendly solutions, as they can increase the organic carbon and not affect the environment as much.

Data Analysis

If the biological work is done, then it is very likely for the soil carbon to be at a higher range than previously, when none of the research and the work were done. Biological activities, which are on the healthier side, also make stronger root systems and it makes plants grow faster. It's mainly done with increased organic carbon in the soil.
