Project Overview

The Fortín Farías project entails the implementation of regenerative agriculture practices in the Buenos Aires Province, Centre and Northeastern Region of Argentina. The prevailing agriculture practices in this region, characterized by low crop rotation, monocultures, and heavy reliance on chemical inputs, have had a detrimental impact on soil health and fertility. This has led to a decline in organic matter and carbon levels, critical components for soil productivity in terms of nutrient availability, water retention, and overall soil health.

The project’s core objective is to reverse this trend through the implementation of regenerative practices. These include crop rotation, cover cropping, no-till farming, compost and organic amendments, and water management techniques, among others. By adopting these measures, the project aims to increase soil organic matter, reduce soil erosion, promote nutrient recycling, and maintain soil fertility in the long term. Additionally, these practices contribute to significant carbon sequestration from the atmosphere.

The project extends its impact beyond soil health, striving to encourage landowners to transition to sustainable and ecologically sound land management practices. Additionally, the incorporation of socioenvironmental activities further emphasizes the project’s commitment to positive contributions to biodiversity conservation and the well-being of local communities.

Fortín Farías is expected to generate +300,000 carbon credits over the project’s full life, to be certified by the Verified Carbon (VCS).
