Building Partnerships for Climate-Smart Commodities in South Carolina

Clemson University,
U.S. Department of Agriculture

This project will utilize a coalition of 27 entities to execute a pilot project that provides incentives to farmers to implement climate-smart (CS) production practices. The project will examine and verify the benefits resulting from implementing CS practices and will support development of markets for the resulting CS commodities.

The project plans to provide direct payments to producers to implement climate-smart practices like cover crops, residue and tillage management, reduced tillage, mulching, nutrient management, prescribed grazing, prescribed fire, tree stand improvement, and early successional habitat development and management. The plan to develop and expand involves advanced economic analysis techniques to estimate economic and environmental benefits and to assess potential long-term viability, as well as creation of a labeling and certification process for climate-smart commodities.
