Farming has been the heart and soul of America since its founding. American farmers not only feed the world, but they often lead the world on new farming practices and technologies that can increase the land’s productivity and lessen environmental impact. This panel will explore how the agricultural sector represents a new frontier for clean energy opportunities. Discussion will focus on policies that can help encourage emissions reductions and the role of voluntary carbon credit markets. Panelists will address historic barriers that farmers, ranchers, and land managers face in reducing emissions and the appropriate role for government to simplify the process.
