An advance payment of up to $5,000 is now available through a pilot program for eligible Emissions Reduction Fund (ERF) soil projects to help with upfront costs of soil sampling.
The sequestration of carbon in Australian soils can reduce emissions and enhance agricultural productivity, but the costs of soil sampling for projects under the ERF’s measured soil method has been identified as a key barrier to more soil projects participating in the scheme. The advance payment assists project proponents with meeting the costs of baseline soil sampling required under the measured soil method.
