FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: October 18, 2022                            


Toronto, Ontario– Deveron Corp. (TSX-V:FARM) (“Deveron” or the “Company”), a leading agriculture data company in North America, is pleased to announce that due to the success of the initial year of the project and further to its press release of October 14, 2021 the Company has expanded its enterprise agreement supporting the USDA by US $900,000. This represents organic growth of 50% on the contract and increases the total value to US $2.7 million. The Company has agreed to provide an additional US $464,500 in collection service as well as US

$435,500 in soil analytics and has expanded the scope of the contract to include Kansas, Oklahoma, Texas, Colorado, Montana, Idaho, and Washington.

The soil analytics will be provided by Deveron’s vertically integrated lab network. The initial contract, signed on September 29, 2021, provides the USDA access to Deveron’s new platform which provides a scalable and streamlined process for collecting, analyzing, and sharing in-field soil carbon data. The soil data will be used to support the USDA’s Conservation Reserve Program that is being run in partnership with Michigan State University, University of Arkansas at Pine Bluff and the University of Wisconsin.

“It’s an honor to be a trusted agricultural data provider for one of the most credible organizations in the industry. The USDA’s investment into sustainable agriculture and carbon offsets is shaping the future of this industry, and it’s truly inspiring to see the level of work the USDA is putting in” said David MacMillan, Deveron’s President, and CEO. “Soil data is the backbone of good agronomic decisions, and the scaling of that service has been constant pain point for the agricultural industry. By expanding the scope of this project with the USDA, we are clearly demonstrating the scalability of our soil ecosystem.”

To date Deveron has signed US $10 million in enterprise contracts to use the Company’s carbon services platform since its launch in Q3/2021. The platform eliminates significant impediments to the accurate measurement of carbon sequestration in agricultural land and is a key enabler

for creating reliable and credible carbon credits. The platform is built on three key principles

highlighted below:

  • Leverage Deveron’s growing network of trained and dedicated soil technicians across North America, thus ensuring consistency of sampling
  • Provide single chain of custody from the farm to the lab to the client in a digital platform
  • Ensure soil data integrity via best-in-class data security
