Working to find actionable solutions to the nation's key challenges.

Agriculture may soon have an unprecedented opportunity to access a new source of income – carbon markets. As the US begins fighting climate change by reducing greenhouse gases, farmers can tap into a new, multi-billion dollar carbon market. According to leading agricultural economists, carbon markets could be one of the largest commodity markets for farmers in the coming decades. In fact, it’s possible that carbon sequestration could generate $12-$20/acre while other practices generate even more revenue. Plus, reducing greenhouse gas emissions could also spur more demand for biofuels. To learn more about agriculture’s role in helping solve climate change and the new carbon markets, be sure to read the following documents: “The Value of a Carbon Offset Market for Agriculture” and “Agriculture, Climate Change & New Markets Questions & Answers”.
