Bayer and CHS collaborate on carbon program

New agreement could reward an additional 75,000 U.S. farmers for carbon-smart practices.

Bayer and CHS Inc. announced a carbon program collaboration on Nov. 2. The agreement makes Bayer Crop Science the carbon program partner for CHS and the most accessible carbon program for U.S. farmers.

“CHS chose to collaborate with Bayer because its carbon program is simple, established and built on the industry’s most connected and widely used platform, Climate FieldView,” said Dean Hendrickson, vice president, Agronomy, CHS. “Bayer’s program is easy for growers to use and provides them with flexibility to adopt climate-smart farming practices like strip- and no-till and cover crops.”

The agreement brings together two major agriculture industry leaders to help more farmers participate in and benefit from carbon-smart practices. The relationship will extend the Bayer Carbon Program to CHS farmer-owners across 17 states already covered by the program, and also in Colorado, Montana, Oklahoma and Texas.

“While agriculture is listed by the EPA as a contributor to greenhouse gas emissions, it also is one of the few industries with the ability to do something about it,” said Terry Herzig, director, Retail Agronomy, CHS. “To demonstrate our commitment to helping our farmer-owners be part of the solution, we are offering an incremental incentive to growers who participate in the Bayer Carbon Program through CHS.”

Growers can earn additional incentives by purchasing enhanced efficiency fertilizer products, such as N-Edge, Trivar and Levesol from CHS.
