Ag Carbon Credit Contract Checklist
There is considerable interest in selling carbon credits in agricultural circles. Unfortunately, many seem to have an exaggerated notion of how lucrative it may be for farmers or ranchers to sell carbon credits today. This Center for Agricultural Profitability publication provides a checklist of items farmers or ranchers and their attorneys should consider in evaluating a carbon contract with an aggregator (a company contracting with many farmers or ranchers for carbon credits). While this checklist cannot identify every possible issue that may arise regarding a carbon contract, it will give you and your attorney something to begin with.
