Arva Intelligence, Pellet Technology USA and ICM have signed a letter of intent to develop a precision supplementation and rangeland carbon optimization program that will allow ranchers to monetize their contribution to greenhouse gas (GHG) reduction. Leveraging the expertise of all three organizations, the program is designed to offer a cutting-edge solution for carbon sequestration and value creation for rural economies.
Arva Intelligence, a technology company that develops field analytics software for agronomic operations, will help ranch owners identify opportunities for lowering carbon intensity (CI) scores and improving livestock forage with supplements.
The supplements will include ingredients produced by ICM’s low-carbon feed technologies. Pellet Technology USA will combine these ingredients with other climate-friendly feed products and deliver the supplements to distributors serving the ranching industry throughout the Heartland.
“ICM is thrilled to join Arva Intelligence and Pellet Technology on this project,” said Christ Mitchell, ICM president. “By combining our strengths, we are positioned to best serve the ranching community.”
