Credit coming for decades old soil health practices


Farmers who’ve been implementing soil health practices for years aren’t always recognized for that work in new voluntary carbon market programs, because companies who want to reduce their carbon footprint “they’re looking for new tons of carbon to be sequestered.”

But Alan Weber with the University of Missouri’s Center for Regenerative Agriculture says that could change with the use of low carbon intensity feedstocks to produce biofuels.

“In that particular case, a grower that had been using these practices for many years may still be eligible.”

The Inflation Reduction Act created two new tax credits for biofuel producers, including the Sustainable Aviation Fuel tax credit and in 2025, Weber says there will be a Clean Fuel Production Credit.
