Frequently Asked Questions
What practices earn credits?
Practices that earn carbon credits include:
Going no-till or reducing tillage
Incorporating cover crops
Diversifying your crop rotation
Reducing nitrogen use
What if I adopted practices in the past?
Carbon credits can only be generated for practices adopted on a field two years before entering into the Gradable Carbon program. This guarantees that we are producing high quality credits that represent additional sequestration and emissions reductions.
How much money will I make?
For practice adopted in the 2019 and 2020 growing seasons we are fixing a price floor of $20 / carbon credit with Gradable retaining a portion of each credit generated to cover insurance, sampling, administration, and fees. But that’s not the price you have to agree to. Gradable Carbon allows you to bank credits and take advantage of the possible upside in the market, expanding your profit potential from participating in the program.
