Cropnuts’ Soil Baseline Carbon Mapping is a service that enables farmers and land managers to accurately measure and monitor the amount of carbon stored in their soils. By establishing a baseline measurement our experts can determine the total stocks of organic carbon present in the soil before the start of a project. This allows quantifying the future carbon removals/sequestrations in the lifetime of the project.
Soil Baseline Carbon Mapping is a process of measuring and mapping the amount of carbon stored in the soil before any land use or management changes occur. By establishing a baseline, farmers and land managers can better understand the current state of their soil and track changes over time. Cropnuts experts use advanced techniques such as soil sampling, laboratory analysis, and GIS mapping to provide accurate and reliable data on soil carbon content.
At Cropnuts, we take pride in using the most advanced and reliable methodologies to provide our clients with accurate information on soil health. That’s why our process for Soil Baseline Carbon Mapping incorporates the internationally recognized VERRA standard for the quantification of soil carbon.

Our team of experts will visit your site to understand your specific needs and goals. We’ll discuss the project scope, timelines, and any other important details that will inform our approach.
We will determine the different strata of the project site in order to identify the total number of and the location of the sampling sites.
We’ll collect soil samples from your site using standardized sampling protocols to ensure accuracy and consistency. Samples will be brought back to the lab where they will be analysed for soil organic carbon and bulk density.
Our team will run laboratory analyses on the collected samples to determine the content of organic carbon in each sample. The laboratory results will be used to quantify the carbon stocks (in tons/ha) in each of the project strata allowing us to map the carbon stocks across the project area.
We’ll provide a comprehensive report that includes our findings and a baseline soil carbon map.
