Bayer expands carbon program

Bayer’s carbon program will include new geographies and increased farmer eligibility.

The Bayer Carbon Program is expanding to provide farmers with ways to generate additional revenue and implement climate-smart farming practices, say company officials. Benefits also include the potential for improving soil health that can result in increased yields and profitability of farmers’ operations. 

Enhancements for the 2021-2022 program season include eligibility for growers who have adopted strip- or no-till or cover crops on fields on or after January 1, 2012. 

In addition to the nine states that were part of the program’s first year, new states where growers are now eligible to participate include: 

  • Wisconsin
  • South Dakota
  • Nebraska
  • Arkansas
  • Mississippi
  • Louisiana
  • Maryland
  • Delaware

Here is a complete list of eligible geographies in which farmers may enroll and learn more about the 2021 Bayer Carbon Program.
