Understanding carbon contracts an agriculture
March 4, 2022 By Will Clark U of A System Division of Agriculture Fast facts: • National Agricultural Law Center webinar offers overview of carbon contracts. • Webinar is March 23 at noon-1 p.m. EDT/11-noon CDT. • Register online at: https://bit.ly/3tsEms4. (321 words) (With art at https://bit.ly/3tKCv23) FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. — Soil carbon contracts are unlike other contracts signed by farmers
and ranchers, and present new challenges and questions. As a result, these contracts
will be the focus of the National Agricultural Law Center’s webinar, “Considering
Carbon: Understanding the Legalities of Soil Carbon Sequestration Contracts,” on March
23, at noon EDT/11 a.m. CDT. Several programs exist that offer to pay farmers to increase the carbon levels in
their soil through no-till, strip-till, and cover cropping. In exchange for implementing
these practices, farmers agree to sell the carbon credits generated on their fields
to third-party brokers, who in turn sell those credits to industries looking to offset
their emissions and reduce their carbon footprints.
This webinar’s presenter will be Todd J. Janzen, attorney and founder of Janzen Schroeder
Agricultural Law LLC. He’ll provide an examination of these new soil carbon contracts
and explain the challenges to widespread adoption. “For those wanting to enter the soil carbon space, this webinar will help them better
understand the challenges these contracts can create while providing strategies to
facilitate more widespread farmer adoption,” Janzen said. “Soil carbon contracts present
farmers with a new revenue stream that comes not from producing a crop, but from how
that crop is produced.” The upcoming webinar is the next installment in the National Agricultural Law Center’s
“Considering Carbon” series, a collection of webinars, blogs, and other resources
discussing a variety of topics related to the carbon space. You can find other “Considering Carbon” resources here: https://bit.ly/3hxPSNa. “Recently, both USDA and private industry have become very focused on soil carbon
sequestration. The complex contracts needed to develop this market while also protecting
the landowner make this issue incredibly relevant to the ag law community,” Harrison
Pittman, director of the National Agricultural Law Center said. “Todd is a nationally
respected agricultural lawyer with tremendous experience on this issue. We’re looking
forward to him providing additional insight and clarity on carbon contracts.” Learn more and register for the webinar here: https://bit.ly/3tsEms4. For more information on the National Agricultural Law Center, visit https://nationalaglawcenter.org/
