Credit for carbon

The Iowa Farm Bureau Federation continues to support carbon credits by expanding a pilot program to national markets. Farmers in Iowa, Kansas and Nebraska have enrolled 330,000 acres in the carbon credit program that pays farmers to reduce carbon through no-till conservation practices.

Companies buy the carbon credits to offset emissions. For example, the University of Iowa purchased carbon credits in this program to offset emissions from its power plant, which is gearing up for a biomass plant to burn oat hulls from Quaker Oats.

For more information, contact the Iowa Farm Bureau at 515/225-5414 or visit www.iowafarmbureau.com.
