Carbon Credit Markets: What Farmers Need to Know
Wednesday, July 14, 2021
Noon – 2:30 p.m. (CDT)
Today’s agriculture environment is more dynamic than ever, with private-sector companies asking farmers to adopt climate-friendly practices with thoughts of increasing their income while reducing their carbon footprint. But not all climate programs are carbon-only initiatives. What does this really mean for farmers in terms of costs and commitments associated with these programs? What information does a farmer need to share? How long is a farmer locked into these private-sector agreements if Federal programs arise? What are some of the burdens involved, and what practices or measured outcomes are required to participate in the program?
Iowa Farm Bureau’s Carbon Credit Markets: What Farmers Need to Know virtual roundtable will help answer those questions and synthesize that volume of information into useful insights. By bringing together scientific, business, association and private-sector climate program stakeholders, we’ll help farmers build understanding from various perspectives by looking at program attributes, outcomes for farm families, possible consequences of engaging or withholding from participating in programs currently, and how existing programs integrate with or transition to future broad-scale programs moving forward.
This 2 ½ hour virtual roundtable is FREE for Farm Bureau members (and $50 for non-members), and takes place on Wednesday,
July 14 at Noon (CDT).
The webinar will kick off with an overview from
American Farm Bureau Federation Economist Shelby Myers and
Dr. Joe Outlaw, Professor and Extension Economist at Texas A&M – followed by a roundtable discussion with representatives from companies that are currently offering carbon credit programs, including:
Lisa Streck (Bayer),
Ben Gordon (Corteva)
Adam Kiel (AgOutcomes – a subsidiary of the Iowa Soybean Association).
Participants will also have an opportunity to directly engage with our panel of speakers by submitting questions prior to the event and/or by using the ZOOM Q&A feature during the event.
Don’t miss this opportunity to learn more about private-sector carbon credit programs currently available and what those programs could mean for you and your farm operation moving forward.
