Reducing Smallholder Farmer Poverty and Fighting Climate Change

AgCoTech has a unique medicated block technology to reduce greenhouse gas
and poverty in smallholder farms in developing countries

How It Works .

Research undertaken by Emeritus Professor Peter Windsor, School of Veterinary Science at The University of Sydney, with support from DFAT and BPP, found medicated molasses blocks for livestock can reduce smallholder farmer poverty & fight climate change.

Enhancing livelihoods of smallholder farmers in Laos .

Research developed through a Business Partnerships Platform initiative has informed AgCoTech's business model, where medicated molasses blocks will be produced in Laos and other countries to provide low cost supplements to smallholder famers.

Our Story .

AgCoTech wanted to do more than just offset carbon, believing carbon offset programs should be able to accomplish more than simply planting a tree.

In addition to developing an innovative way to approach carbon offsetting, AgCoTech is committed to a supply chain that reduces poverty, improves animal health and encourages gender equality in small agricultural hubs.

After many years of research supported by Sydney University and independent trials all around the world, a patented innovative medicated block technology has been developed.

These medicated blocks allow ruminant (cattle, sheep etc) to get the maximum nutritional benefit from their feed, resulting in a significant reduction in methane production from the animals and improving their overall health and productivity, which in turn produces higher milk and meat production.

Prof Peter Windsor of the Sydney School of Veterinary Science Australia has issued a report showcasing how these medicated blocks can be used to fight climate change & reduce smallholder farmer poverty. A copy of the report can be downloaded here.

AgCoTech plan to manufacture its technology in local hubs, providing local communities with employment opportunities.

Investors .

A successful carbon offset program must have economies of scale. We want to build facilities in developing countries to maximise the ability to reduce carbon emissions, improve quality of life for smallholder farmers and generate real change.
