The U.S. agriculture industry is estimated to produce at least 10% of global greenhouse-­gas emissions. “Agriculture and climate are in a bit of a vicious cycle,” says Regrow CEO and co-founder Anastasia Volkova. “Climate is affecting agriculture negatively by introducing more volatility. And agriculture is affecting climate in a negative way with practices that are not very sustainable.” Regrow is on a mission to reverse that trend and decarbonize the planet. Combining satellite imagery with soil samples, the company now works with food giants like General Mills, Kellogg’s, and Cargill to measure the carbon impacts of their supplier farms and model new scenarios to incentivize growers to implement climate-­positive practices.
