Supporting Agricultural Producers at All Scales to Deliver Productivity, Market Opportunities, and Enhanced Soil, Water, and Climate Benefits

This project will build climate-smart markets for a variety of agricultural commodities and help to make adopting climate-smart agriculture and forestry practices more economically viable for producers by compensating them at a rate that guarantees and reasonable return, with a price floor that surpasses costs. It also proposes to conduct research on consumer willingness to pay for climate-smart labels to help assess the private market and label effectiveness, and develop a national climate-smart agriculture and forestry certification model that can used with private sector purchasers.
