Grow Indigo, Dvara E-Registry partner to connect farmers to carbon markets

Grow Indigo and Dvara E-Registry (DER) partner to promote climate-smart farming practices and create income opportunities for farmers. This collaboration will connect smallholder farmers to the carbon market by adopting regenerative farming practices, Dvara said in a statement, thus creating a win-win situation for both the environment and the farming community.

Grow Indigo, known for its efforts to help farmers adopt regeneration practices, and Dvara E-Record, a leader in leveraging technology to improve farm profitability and reduce farming costs, are set to lead a joint venture. The common goal is to mitigate emissions of Greenhouse Gases (GHGs) and generate carbon credits in the Madhya Pradesh region to begin with. The statement said Dvara E-Registry and Grow Indigo are already working on providing farmers with alternative inputs in the form of biological products to reduce the use of synthetic inputs and improve productivity.

Renewable agricultural practices

Farmers participating in this initiative are encouraged to shift from traditional farming methods to renewable farming practices. These include direct sowing of rice, reduced field flooding, no or reduce tillage, and integrated nutrient management. Not only do these practices significantly reduce greenhouse gases, but they also promote improved soil health, increased crop yields, and long-term cost reduction.

This partnership aims to promote regenerative farming practices by incentivizing farmers with additional income. This is the first effort of its kind in Madhya Pradesh to connect farmers to voluntary carbon markets,” says Umang Agrawal, Head of Carbon and Sustainable Products from Grow Indigo. “By catalyzing regenerative agriculture, we aim to make a big difference in the agriculture sector, matching the needs of our planet with the needs of our farmers.”

“Combining our digital capabilities with Grow Indigo’s expertise in sustainable agriculture and carbon control presents an incredible opportunity for transformative change,” said Tarun Katuch, Co-Founder of Dvara E-Registry. “This initiative is not only about reducing greenhouse gas emissions, it is also about enabling our farmers to play an active role in climate solutions, while improving their livelihoods. The fusion of technology and regenerative agriculture will redefine agriculture in a climate-smart world.”
