OCP Group partners with Bioline and Agrorobótica to launch their first carbon farming and certification project to support sustainable agriculture in Brazil

OCP Group, Bioline by InVivo, Agrorobótica and a selected farmer from Brazil launch a project to enhance regenerative, sustainable agriculture and carbon sequestration in soil

OCP Group, one of the world’s largest custodians and suppliers of phosphate-based fertilizers and associated products on Tuesday announced a partnership for an initial carbon farming and certification project across Matto Grosso – the leading producer of livestock and grains in Brazil, alongside the farmers’ cooperative Bioline by Invivo, and agtech company, Agrorobótica. The selected farmer is an early adopter of innovative technologies. At present, the project would be covering areas of cotton, soybean, and corn, which are representative of Brazilian agriculture.

The project offshoots from a shared belief that soil health management is vital to developing the environment, attaining food security, and working towards global net zero ambitions. This is now the beginning of a larger partnership between OCP Group, Bioline, and Agrorobótica.

The partnership would promote regenerative farming practices to improve yield and soil quality through individualized digital solutions that are tailor-made to the region and the crop. For attaining this, the project will utilize Agrorobótica’s AI-led soil analysis tool – Laser Induced Breakdown Spectroscopy (LIBS) – to assess, report, and validate carbon content and sequestration potential. LIBS is an analytical method that utilizes a high-focused laser to create micro plasma on the surface of the soil sample, to ascertain its rudimentary composition without producing any harmful chemical residues.

LIBS creates insights that enable a farmer to adopt the regenerative systems essential for sustainable agriculture. These systems enhance the soil’s capacity to sequester carbon and improve soil health and fertility, which in turn reduces carbon emissions, strengthens food security, and helps to enhance revenues for farmers.

The carbon credits created from the project offer a valuable source of income for the farmer and OCP Group will put the carbon credits that it obtains from this partnership towards its individual objectives of achieving Zero carbon emissions by 2040.

The partnership is OCP Group’s first phase into carbon agriculture, reflecting its strategy to take the lead in a sustainable agriculture transformation and promote innovative smart practices to improve harvests and soil quality.

Hanane Mourchid, Chief Sustainability Officer of OCP Group, said: OCP Group promotes regenerative agriculture practices in Brazil, Africa, and many areas across the globe by supporting farmers through training, deploying the 4R approach, and fostering innovation.

The project is a concrete way to unlock the potential of agriculture as a natural carbon sink that will help achieve the Paris Agreement objectives, Mourchid added.

Laurent Martel, Bioline by InVivo CEO, said that this project demonstrates Bioline by InVivo’s commitment to accelerate agricultural solutions for the environment, by diversifying farmers’ revenues.

Agriculture can regenerate natural capital, agriculture is a solution to the climate crunch, and farmers must be compensated for their regenerating actions.

‘‘We are launching a French Carbon Farming project: Carbone&Co, with French cooperatives, and created CarbonExtract, a digital monitoring, reporting, and verification digital tool for carbon farming projects,’’ Martel said.

Carbon farming is a nascent model that needs to be assessed on different experimental grounds, alongside other tools to finance the transition, and a global approach makes a lot of sense to identify the best approaches. Bioline expects a great deal from its partnership with OCP through this pilot which will feed its knowledge-building to discover, create and accelerate the solutions that will help farmers regenerate the ecosystem and diversify their income.

Fábio Angelis, Founder & CEO of Agrorobótica said that the purpose of Agrorobótica is to contribute to food security and the mitigation of climate change in the sphere.
