Climate-Smart Agriculture that is Profitable, Regenerative, Actionable, and Trustworthy (CARAT)

Pennsylvania State University- University Park,
U.S. Department of Agriculture


This project will enable partners to expand climate-smart markets and work with dairy producers in PA to implement climate-smart agriculture. An overarching goal is establishing successful and profitable partnerships between diverse producers, including underserved producers, and consumers, leading to a reduction of greenhouse gases, suppressing methane (CH4) and nitrous oxide (N2O) emissions, and storage of carbon.

The proposal plans to market climate-smart milk by utilizing the CARAT advisory board to connect with companies interested in purchasing greenhouse gas credits or climate-smart milk.
