KFB to host carbon credit meetings

Informational meetings slated in seven Kansas locations in January, February

Kansas

Kansas Farm Bureau will host a series of informational meetings on carbon credits for farm operators and landowners in the state.

Steve Swaffar, director of Natural Resources with Kansas Farm Bureau will present the sessions and provide information on how farmers and ranchers can earn income from no-till/strip-till crop production, planting new grass and specific rangeland management. KFB has partnered with AgraGate Climate Credits Corporation of West Des Moines, Iowa.

"We had good attendance at our meetings and enrollment in 2008, but there are still a lot of eligible acres in Kansas that can be enrolled," says Swaffar. "For farmers and ranchers looking to earn a little extra income on their no-till or range acres this can be a great fit and doesn't require mountains of paperwork."

All meetings are open to farmers and ranchers wanting to learn more about this program. Arrangements can also be made to assist landowners interested in signing up.

The meeting dates, times and locations:

--Jan. 23; Erie, Kansas 10:30 a.m.; Neosho County Courthouse basement; 100 South Main.

--Jan. 30; El Dorado, Kansas 10:00 a.m.; Butler County Farm Bureau Office; 341 North Main.
