Regenerative Toolbox: How OpenTEAM Software Can Help Farmers Draw Down Emissions

A variety of software tools help farmers and ranchers to track agricultural practices, calculate greenhouse gas emissions and sequestered carbon and remotely monitor environmental conditions. However, these helpful tools haven't been able to "talk" with one another to help mitigate climate impacts--until now. Speakers from Stonyfield, the USDA, and Land PKS discuss how OpenTEAM software knits together critical agricultural and climate-related software applications to create a powerful data-based, positive feedback loop that provides recommendations to speed up soil health and climate improvement on farms.
