Today, The Nature Conservancy (TNC) announced it has invested in a series of emerging agtech companies that have the potential to accelerate adoption of regenerative agriculture management practices for the benefit of growers, soil health, climate, and biodiversity. By establishing portfolio of emerging companies targeting soil health, TNC aims to prime the pump for sustainable innovation across investment sectors.

“The science of soil health solutions is becoming more evident every day, but the pace of market-driven innovations has so far lagged the need for action,” said Renée Vassilos, TNC’s Director of Agricultural Innovation. “By putting our money where our mouth is, we’re optimistic about the potential of our portfolio companies to accelerate solutions to the soil health challenge.”

TNC is deeply committed to conserving the lands and waters of the planet. Guided by science, the organization creates innovative, on-the-ground solutions to the world’s toughest challenges so nature and humans can thrive together. TNC uses a collaborative approach that engages local communities, governments, the private sector, and other partners in 72 countries and territories.

“Working with an organization with the expertise and long-standing commitment to innovation of The Nature Conservancy is an exciting opportunity for Growers Edge,” said Dan Cosgrove, CEO of Growers Edge. “Our partnership with TNC and the other portfolio companies brings together a cohort that will have a profound impact on the next generation of ag innovation.”

Growers Edge is working with TNC and ag retailers and manufacturers to design warranty-backed crop plans and lending solutions that will help growers adopt new technologies that help reduce the risk of adopting regenerative practices.

TNC worked with iSelect, an early-stage venture firm, to identify companies for investment.
