Low-Carbon Grain:

A farmer-led sustainability solution

By attaching environmental attributes to grain, Gradable™ re-aligns the agriculture supply chain to address today’s most pressing climate challenges

WHAT IS GRADABLE?

A reimagined grain supply chain that creates value for environmental stewardship

Agriculture is a foundation for a more sustainable future. Buyers desire environmentally responsible agriculture products to satisfy consumer demand, but lack the tools to find, score, and win bushels from the thousands of farms who can produce these sustainably grown goods.

 

At the same time, many farmers are eager to participate in or expand conservation efforts, and to earn compensation for regenerative practices. Gradable’s technology and grain services bring new opportunities into existing grain marketing structures for both buyer and farmer, facilitating premiums on attributes associated with individual bushels of production.

Farmers First®

Born from the commitment of Farmers Business Network to put Farmers First®, Gradable stimulates rural economies by rewarding producers for growing sustainable grain, aligning economic needs with environmental imperatives. Farmers who implement emissions abatement strategies may see a significant increase in value over traditional commodity grains.

Prioritizing abatement

We advocate for a near-term focus on emissions abatement to create immediate improvements  for our farmers and the environment that can be tracked with existing farm technology. If emissions don’t occur, then they don't need to be recaptured. Our initiatives demonstrate agricultural emissions can be reduced by as much as 50%, while increasing farm incomes.

An ecosystem of technology

For buyers, Gradable provides the technology, service, and tools to source and score Low-Carbon Grain, helping brands effectively work towards emissions goals while serving consumers who are committed to making better decisions for their families and the planet. For growers, Gradable provides opportunities to participate in premium grain markets with more profit potential while engaging in innovative conservation and sustainability practices.

GRAIN TECHNOLOGY

An interconnected financial and technology service platform for commercial agricultural entities

The majority of coops, ethanol plants, grain merchants, and feed yards are trying to modernize their operations with a complicated patchwork of specialized service providers.

Maximizing farm profit potential through sustainability practices**

“Regenerative agriculture techniques have not only saved us money, they’ve made us money. We’ve always tried these practices side by side and can compare conventional tillage to no-till and strip till and we’ve realized the benefits through our data analytics.”
