Keystone Agricultural Producers has developed a submission to the federal government on behalf of our members regarding the new Federal Greenhouse Offset System. The Federal GHG Offset system will provide an opportunity for farmers to be recognized for the EG&S they provide. Farmers will measure the emissions reductions from a project and be compensated through a credit system for the greenhouse gases (GHG) that they did not emit, or for the GHG that they stored or sequestered. Using credits through an offset system may also provide an incentive for farmers to adopt new practices and farming techniques to qualify.
