Valuing the Ecosystem Service Benefits from Regenerative Agriculture Practices

This report summarizes the impacts of two investment funds Farmland LP has used to purchase farmland. Using Ecosystem Service Valuation and greenhouse gas accounting models, this report quantifies the environmental, social, and economic value of the purchased farmland since its conversion from conventional to sustainable management practices. The results indicate that, on top of the financial gain of the fund, the land managed by Farmland LP has generated $15.3 million in ecosystem service value (ESV), and a net ESV of $25.8 million as compared to if the land had remained under conventional management.
