Lately, it seems we all have been hearing about the potential of agricultural carbon markets. This edition of The Current webinar series dives into the topic! We hear from leading experts on the latest research on soil carbon sequestration and the state of the science, what producers need to know or consider before entering an agreement, and how different companies and organizations are going about verifying soil carbon sequestration and the different protocols used.

We know you have a lot of questions, this is a great opportunity to hear what we know and what we don’t!
