Max Armstrong provides insights from an Extension ag law specialist, Tiffany Lashmet, about the legal issues in contracts for carbon farming. She’s received calls from farmers who signed contracts without reading them, and want to get out of them later. She says to pay attention to payment terms, term extensions or even permanence, as well as termination penalties. Producers are also often required to divulge so much data. Get good legal counsel, she advises.

Max Armstrong's Farm Progress America is a daily look at key issues in agriculture. It is produced and presented by Max Armstrong, veteran farm broadcaster and host of This Week in Agribusiness.
