I would suggest this. If you rent land, I would make certain you consider now how to make a tenant claim on sequestrated SOC.
If you have the "green" thumb and know how to recover soil health, there is some common knowledge that damaged and low-life energy soils have a stronger come-back that a soil landscape that has been in healthy recovery for five or more years?
The cost to first bring the field to a sustainable condition is a valuable skill to allow a carbon accumulation soil health program that can fully register SOC accumulations from field in recovery.
The rules of thumb generally work as follows:
Healthy, in-balance no-till that is also using BMP IPM and VRT can sequestrate SOC at 0.3 to 1.5mt/ac/year
One metric tonne SOC increase converts to CO2e (the standard unit of carbon credit) 1SCO:3.67CO2e
Current carbon credits in mtCO2e is $15 to $20/mtCO2e.
Agriculture's potential to sequestrate millions of mtCO2e per year via the 100million acres of no-till and another 100million of conservation tillage is being seen as a buffer stock for large NET-zero projects and policy?
