A crop consultant says there are different opportunities available for farmers to generate income from carbon programs.

Mitchell Hora is a 7th generation southeast Iowa farmer and consultant who encourages farmers to explore the ways regenerative farming and a low carbon intensity score can improve the farm’s bottom line. 

Hora says 93% of farmers know about carbon programs, but less than 3% participate because the money isn’t there for them.  He says a farmer’s carbon footprint is really a part of the carbon footprint of the next player in the supply chain, so farmers need to know their data.
