Planning for New Profitability: A Sneak Preview of the Carbon Farming Connection

    January 30, 2023

    As farmers prepare for the upcoming growing season, many are watching trends to understand their impact on farm operations, profitability, and farm longevity. Rising input costs continue to put pressure on profitability while widespread drought trends reduced yields across large regions of the country in 2022. Meanwhile, demand for ag-based carbon credits and crops that are validated as sustainably grown continues to climb.

    So, what does all of this mean for growers heading into 2023? As with any evolving situation, those who are aware of the risks and prepared to embrace new opportunities will gain the most advantage. This upcoming growing season will be shaped by weather patterns and increasing interest in ag-based carbon credits. Growers who are prepared to mitigate potential drought conditions will have a better chance at maintaining their yields in spite of weather, while those ready to engage on new revenue streams will stand to gain higher profitability.

    On Wednesday, February 1st, Indigo will host its fourth Carbon Farming Connection webinar with ag experts and experienced farmers who will dive into three emerging trends for 2023:

    1. Weather trends for the upcoming growing season and strategies for limiting downside risk
    2. The growing demand for farm data and how growers can take advantage
    3. Why joining a carbon program now makes sense

    In each of these sessions, attendees will hear from scientists, agronomists, carbon market experts, and farmers with real world experience.

    Panelists include:

    • Alyssa Charney, Chief of Staff, NRCS at USDA

    • David DeWitt, Director, Climate Prediction Center, NOAA’s National Weather Service

    • Jennifer Soong, Carbon and Ecosystem Services Science Lead, Corteva Agriscience

    • And many others!

    Attendees will gain actionable insights that can help growers manage risk and improve profitability in 2023, and get their questions answered in real-time by Indigo experts. Click here to register for this virtual event.
