Verification summary

Land ownership was confirmed through the county auditors' websites of Dickinson and Clay Counties, Iowa. Ownership of chosen fields was confirmed to be the farmer and his wife or an LLC owned by the farmer and his wife. Both owners signed attestations with the project developer. It was confirmed that none of these lands are part of any existing carbon project, registered with the three large voluntary carbon registries, with agriculturally related methodologies/protocols, but checking the projects registered. The project activity was confirmed through interviews with the farmer and a third-party service provider who is familiar with the farmer's operation.
