Get extra credit for your conservation practices

The benefits of no-till are well documented. It can save time, fuel, soil, moisture, and allow a producer to reduce his line of equipment. Now the emergence of carbon sequestration and the trading of carbon credits has created a side-benefit to no-till and other conservation farming practices.

Merle Holle, who owns M&K Farms near Marysville, Kan., with his son, Kim, has been using no-till since the early 1990s and signed his first carbon credit contract in 2005. Holle started no-till farming on one 80-acre field they purchased in 1993. This field had a lot of hairpin terraces with varying slopes that made it difficult to farm conventionally. He started to no-till this field after attending a no-till demonstration in Gage County, Neb.
