In August, Kilter Rural received accreditation for its soil condition assessment methodology. It is the second methodology Kilter Rural has approved under the Accounting for Nature (AfN) framework. This soil method is developed in collaboration with our long-time technical soils partner Regen Soils.
The method is uniquely designed not just to score the condition of our soils in both environmental and production contexts but in a manner that supports the collection of data for ongoing agronomic purposes and for understanding our broader landscape soil carbon picture. It has been constructed in close consultation with our farmland agronomists, who have a primary role in sampling and then dispatching these samples for independent laboratory analysis.
With this accreditation, Kilter Rural will build our first full environmental account (EA) for our Australian Farmland Fund properties, due before the end of 2021.
