Ruby Canyon Engineering, Inc. (RCE) completed its first GHG verification associated with conservation cropping (commonly referred to as “no till”) in Alberta, Canada. RCE teamed up with Brightspot Climate to complete the work located across hundreds of farms in the province. This innovative project type generates offsets from carbon sequestration in cropland soils by reducing the numbers of equipment passes each farmer performs on their fields. Participants plant crops using special low-disturbance farming equipment. The equipment plants seeds and applies fertilizer during one pass, reducing the amount of soil disturbance from tillage and fossil fuels consumed in farming equipment. Offset project developers organized over 900 farms in order to aggregate thousands of acres of farmland for this project.
