FARMERS CAN PROFIT FROM CARBON CREDITS
Carbon credits can provide farmers a line of revenue while also improving crop yield and quality. Since the discovery of climate change, scientists have talked a lot about Carbon Credits. Carbon Credits, Carbon Offsets, and Carbon Footprint are becoming a matter of concern to many farmers.
Ask any farmer and he will say that monitoring carbon emissions is increasing in importance. Fewer than allowed and the Farmer can sell those carbon credits. Carbon in the soil vs. the atmosphere is a very good thing.
THE NEAR FUTURE OF CARBON CREDITS
When speaking to an Executive for one of the largest ethanol producing companies in the USA, Biofeed was told, “The day is coming that a farmer will be able to cash in on his Carbon Credits and I see that day coming very soon”.
FIX” CO2 INTO THE SOIL
There are ways to “FIX” CO2 into the soil and the future of farming is looking brighter as a result. A farmer can produce a crop and instead of contributing to atmospheric CO2, the farmer can reduce it because of the enhanced rate of fixation of CO2 into the soil. Also, farmers do not have to worry about losing applied nitrogen to leaching because of the conversion of nitrogen into the soil. Converted nitrogen adds to the fertility of the soil and the farmer can reap the benefits.
These benefits are more evident in No-till to Low-till farming practices, but they are also evident in soils using tillage. Either way, the fixation of CO2 and nitrate conversion are bio-chemically stimulated, and this process occurs faster than the rate of decomposition of either. It seems that during the process of tilling, the soil does tend to release CO2 to the atmosphere.
