Grower Perspectives on Carbon market opportunities and unknowns
April 6 @ 11:00 am – 12:00 pm
The proliferation of carbon markets is creating both opportunity and confusion in agriculture, including for in-field advisers, agricultural retailers, Extension personnel, and growers. This confusion, largely resulting from the various unknowns associated with these markets, is impeding participation in these market opportunities. This three-part webinar series will explore and address key risks and unknowns associated with carbon markets, so that those interested in entering a carbon market can do so with greater knowledge and confidence.
A limited series of American Society of Agronomy and Soil Science Society of America webinars produced with the support of American Farmland Trust, American Soybean Association, United Soybean Board, and The Nature Conservancy.
Date: Wednesday, April 6, 2022
Time: 12:00 Noon-1:00 PM Eastern/11:00 AM-12:00 Noon Central/10:00-11:00 AM Mountain/9:00-10:00 AM Pacific
Carbon markets have been proposed as a viable avenue by which to provide economic benefits to farmers while reducing greenhouse gas emissions. Yet, to date, few farmers have signed up for these markets. This webinar will discuss carbon markets utilizing a panel of four growers with first-hand experience in this area. These growers will discuss how they weighed the costs and benefits of management changes, records requirements, and general uncertainties in the rapidly-evolving carbon marketplace. By the end of this webinar, farmers, farm advisers, and market developers will gain valuable insights into why farmers are, or are not, signing up for carbon markets.
