We are in the process of evaluating whether it makes financial sense for farmers to enrol in the SFI 2022 Standard as well as Soil Capital Carbon, knowing that we would generate carbon payments for you relating only to the farming practices not required by the SFI for you to earn your SFI payments. Please contact us directly to discuss the specifics of your farm.
3.5. My farm is / will be certified against an environmental standard like Red Tractor, can I register with Soil Capital Carbon?
Yes. If the certification scheme is not a carbon payment scheme, it is compatible with the Soil Capital Carbon scheme.
3.4. I am already receiving a carbon payment on some of my crops (such as oilseed rape), can I register with Soil Capital Carbon?
No. You cannot sell the carbon twice. As Soil Capital Carbon assesses all your crops in rotation, it is not possible to exclude a crop (such as oilseed rape) that is already receiving carbon payments. So you have to choose: get a carbon payment on an individual crop or get carbon payments on your whole farm.
No. Carbon payments are not cumulative.
3.2. I have several farming entities managed in the same way. Do I have to register each of them and pay several times?
No. If the two farming entities are managed in the same way (same machines, crops, management practices, etc.), you only have to pay for one programme because Soil Capital Carbon considers them as one farm.
