Our Mission

Unlock climate action at a gigaton scale through science-backed technology. Together with our partners, we empower farmers & ranchers to create a planet that thrives.

ABOUT US
Boomitra is the leading international soil carbon marketplace. Powered by AI and remote sensing technology, we empower farmers and ranchers to transform agricultural practices, earn new streams of income, and create a thriving planet.
Boomitra’s technology enables the monitoring, reporting, and verification of carbon content, nutrients, and moisture levels in the soil. Our tech is third-party validated for carbon markets, measuring at a 10m resolution without the need for physical soil sampling or lab tests. This enables cost-efficient and scalable soil sampling for farms of all sizes.
Our farmer-first partnership model ensures carbon markets and climate finance drive returns for farmers, ranchers, and landowners. Through our network of global partners, we help farmers and ranchers adopt agricultural practices to increase carbon sequestration. Boomitra then quantifies the additional carbon captured and works with international standards bodies to generate Verified Emission Removals (VERs), commonly referred to as carbon credits.
Boomitra sells the carbon credits to corporations and governments worldwide, enabling them to meet their sustainability goals. The majority of the proceeds from each carbon credit sold is given directly to the farmers, allowing them to re-invest in themselves and their communities. With over 5M+ acres currently under management, Boomitra is working with farmers to accelerate carbon removal on a gigaton-scale, while helping them grow more with less.
Our Story
At the time, Aadith was a student at the California Institute of Technology where he was honing his skills in materials science, computer science, and artificial intelligence. With the world facing increasing droughts, floods, and other extreme weather conditions due to the escalating pace of climate change, Aadith contemplated how he could leverage his technical background to build solutions. And so, the concept for Boomitra (formerly known as ConserWater) was born – using satellites and AI to produce insights to help farmers adapt and fight back against the changing climate.

Six years ago, our founder Aadith Moorthy was passing through a remote village in South India when he came upon a funeral procession. The community was mourning the life of a farmer who had taken his own life due to the devastating effects of failed monsoon rains. The crop yields were gone and the farmer was left with no hope. This tragedy sparked a question in Aadith’s mind: why are farmers forced to struggle? Was there anything that modern technology could do to help?

OUR LEADERSHIP TEAM
Meet our Leadership Team
Our multinational team spans four continents and includes seasoned operators in the food and agriculture space, along with geospatial scientists, carbon experts, and engineers.
