In today’s Evening Edition, get caught up on the latest about carbon contracts, the wheat market, and future innovations in agriculture.
Carbon Farming Contracts
“Companies searching for ways to sequester carbon in farmland are mostly choosing to bypass traditional real estate contracts and instead create new ‘soil carbon’ contracts,” writes Todd Janzen, attorney and Successful Farming contributor.
In this article, Janzen examines how new carbon contracts work, how they bypass traditional real estate agreements, and how the real property legal system can be modernized to help fight climate change.
Terry Roggensack, analyst and founder of The Hightower Report, writes about the wheat market and current effects of weather on the U.S. crop conditions.
“The weather forecast seems to have taken a more positive tilt, but the technical action suggests some back and fill action may be in order,” Roggensack says.
Future of Innovation in Ag
BASF has released its 10-year agricultural innovation outlook, which focuses on developments in seeds and traits, seed treatments, biological and chemical crop protection, and digital farming solutions.
Highlighted are the Nematode Resistant Soybean trait technology and a Smart Spraying solution for automated pre- and post-emergence weed control.
