Getting paid to sequester carbon with farming practices is now a reality through the CarbonNOW program from Locus Agricultural Solutions. This year’s price for sequestration, established by the Nori carbon marketplace, is $15 per ton. If you already practice no-till, use cover crops and integrate livestock, you could already be sequestering carbon at a rate between a half-ton and a ton and half per acre, per year. Locus Ag works with Nori, a carbon marketplace that uses COMET-Farm, a USDA tool, to validate carbon sequestration and pay growers. Nori, in turn, works with dozens of companies that have expressed a determination to reduce their carbon footprint and are seeking ways to offset the emissions they generate.
