Farm lands can absorb significant global carbon emissions if farmers adopt agricultural practices that remove carbon from the atmosphere and store it in the soil.

Thanks to the collaboration of E2 and a broad coalition of agriculture and environmental partners, along with the crucial support of Senator Ron Wyden of Oregon, the 2018 Farm Bill enacted last December includes an important new provision to reward farmers for improving soil health while reducing atmospheric carbon.

The Soil Health Demonstration Trial program provides tools and funding to incentivize American farmers to adopt smart soil management practices, as well as establishes metrics that will quantify their carbon reduction impacts.  This creates a potential new revenue stream for farmers to sell credits through carbon markets or participate in other climate mitigation programs – all while reducing operating costs and improving soil fertility and crop resilience.

Please join E2 and some of our Farm Bill coalition partners for this month’s national webinar on this new soil health pilot program and the value proposition to fight climate change by rewarding farmers for carbon performance.
