Yard Stick is a Public Benefit Corporation FOCUSED ON soils' role in the climate crisis.

Yard Stick Announces $10.6M $12M Series A!

Our mission is climate impact via soil carbon measurement technologies.

Soil carbon sequestration efforts to date have been significantly hampered by the complexity and cost of measuring soil organic carbon (SOC) authoritatively and affordably. Our mission is to fix that problem.

By reducing the cost of high-quality SOC measurement by 90%+, we will dramatically expand the opportunities for evidence-based climate-positive agriculture and ranching practices to simultaneously improve ecosystem health, increase farmer/rancher livelihoods, restore soil health, and combat climate change.

Yard Stick is proud to attract world-class funders, scientific advisors, and team members.

Our supporters include the world's leading soil experts, including soil scientist researchers, VC investors, nonprofits, universities and grant funders.
