Farmer's Corner

Transforming the Farmer to Consumer Supply Chain 

Carbon A List, in collaboration with key industry partners, is excited to announce the launch of a $22 million Dairy Manure Management Incentive.

Financial incentives are being offered to farmers and producers to transition to climate-smart practices, aimed at reducing the financial burden that comes with implementing new and innovative systems.
Throughout 2024, this project will also announce initiatives to improve feed management for dairy cows and incentives to grow food-grade climate-smart commodities for human consumption.

What is a climate-smart practice?

Climate-Smart Agriculture and Forestry (CSAF) Mitigation Activities are a list of practices that align with Natural Resource Conservation Services (NRCS) practice codes published each year.


Unless otherwise noted, listed practices have quantifiable carbon sequestration and/or GHG reduction methodologies described in COMET-Planner. New practices will be added as science progresses and scientifically defensible quantification methodologies are identified to accompany existing and new NRCS conservation practice standards.

Farmer Eligibility 

To receive an incentive payment as a part of the Partnerships for Climate-Smart Commodities, a producer must meet the eligibility requirements. 

Eligible producers must comply with USDA and NRCS eligibility and compliance provisions for the Partnerships for Climate Smart Commodities program.  This could include associated conservation incentive program eligibility and compliance requirements such as, but not limited to, those within the Environmental Quality Incentive Program.

Additional project-specific eligibility requirements are subject to change and will be published during open enrollment.
