Carbon Markets 101: Breakeven Prices for Agricultural Practices

For farmers considering whether or not to enter the carbon market, it is important to consider the breakeven price of adopting new agricultural practices.

Data from a 2013 paper by IFC International provides the breakeven prices of carbon credits for tillage, fertilizer, and land retirement practices. We also discuss cover crops as a sequestration practice and the potential price of carbon credits.
