The world of farming is
about to change for the better.
Using a unique algorithm to measure the land’s current and historic performance level provides a clear metric for positive regenerative agricultural practices.
Harnessing satellite technology with ground verified data RAF Soil Star will provide the innovative solution to promote market-lead land regeneration.

PROMOTING GOOD PRACTICE
Our Thinking; Encourage positive land regeneration through a clear market value system.
Soil Star is a national rating system being developed to measure and track a farms’ carbon bank against farm operational metrics.
Defining how well the farm is being carbon managed, is central to linking good practice with value.
A star rating system will be assigned against a transparent set of management criteria. In this way farmland can now be systematically upgraded both in actual performance but also in star rating.
A localised prefix explains the landscape fundamentals Four landscape tier groupings have been created so at a glance land can be immediately qualified in its fundamentals and current management.
For example highly productive loamy pasture in a well irrigated location with excellent carbon farming management would be described as Tier One - Five Star whereas a poorly carbon managed farm would be described as Tier One - One Star. Tier Four would be poor sandy low rain fall zones.
RAF Soil Star drives to create healthy landscapes, healthy profits and secures the national food system.
