Lenexa, Kan., (April 12, 2021) — What do farmers, ranchers and stakeholders across the food and agriculture value chain need to know about the emerging world of carbon markets? Farm Journal’s next Farm Country Update, “The Three Biggest Trends in Carbon Markets,” will feature a panel of experts to discuss how carbon markets are changing what farmers and ranchers are doing at the grassroots level. The online event is set for Thursday, April 15, 2021, at 3 p.m. CDT.

The one-hour session will include exclusive results from Farm Journal’s Pulse Poll conducted earlier this spring where farmers and ranchers were asked to share their views on carbon markets. Other discussion topics will include practical information highlighting what producers need to know as they’re evaluating their options in this rapidly changing business environment.
“Our research shows that the top thing farmers need when it comes to carbon markets is trustworthy information,” said Amy Skoczlas Cole, executive vice president, Trust In Food, a Farm Journal initiative. “This webinar will feature insights from farmers and ranchers actually doing the work of navigating the carbon market ecosystem and perspectives of leaders from government agencies and conservation non-profits positioned to help producers optimize their impact as environmental solutions providers while recognizing economic benefits in the process.”
