The director of farmer and retailer services for Truterra sees great carbon storage potential in Midwestern fields.
Mariah Murphy says soils in Iowa, Illinois, and Indiana are made for carbon sequestration.
“Those are typically where the farmers are getting a higher sequestration rate, that is where they are seeing a higher payout. So I think that also is drawing farmers to open their eyes a little bit to these opportunities.”
She tells Brownfield many farmers in the I-states are already using conservation practices.
