An ag lawyer says soil carbon capture programs are becoming more prevalent, but farmers are still asking a lot of questions.
Todd Janzen, president of Indiana-based Janzen Schroeder Ag Law says the first thing they should inquire about is the compensation structure. “Some are fairly straightforward and say we’ll pay you X number of dollars per acre to switch from conventional-till to minimum-till or no-till,” he says. “And others are more based on the end products.”
He tells Brownfield farmers should also understand the reporting obligations required by the company because all programs do require at least some data.
