Permalink Companies Seek to Make Carbon Sequestration Worthwhile for Farmers

Two blockchain companies that see agricultural carbon sequestration as a solution to climate change are looking for ways to make it a viable alternative for farmers, reports The New Food Economy. Although carbon sequestration in farmland, achieved through farming practices, has potential to reduce atmospheric carbon dioxide, the payoff isn't yet great enough or fast enough to encourage farmers to adopt those practices on a large scale. The feature describes a company that proposes to make it possible for companies that want to offset their emissions to pay farmers directly for carbon sequestration, as well as a company working to document effective carbon sequestration in order to create a carbon market for farmers.
