Farmers see carbon credits as new opportunity to advance industry

Some Midwestern farmers says carbon credits increase their bottom line while improving sustainability efforts.

Indiana farmer Chris Lehe tells Brownfield he received a large payout after switching to no-till farming last year.  “With the time and effort that we put in earning that $25,000 is probably some of the best ROI as far as time goes on the farm.”   

Ben Reinsche, who farms in Northeast Iowa, says incentive-based conservation practices have created additional marketing opportunities.
