The past three years have been a whirlwind when it comes to carbon markets, climate smart agriculture, and conservation funding. There has never been more money available for farmers to try conservation practices for the first time by navigating the program options while simultaneously implementing a practice for the first time can be confusing.

This session will discuss the political, economic, and business factors driving the current conservation and carbon market movement. Miller will also address farmer and agronomist carbon FAQ’s and data needs for conservation and carbon program enrollment.

Megan Miller works on behalf of Illinois Soybean farmers in the development and management of conservation and outreach efforts at the Illinois Soybean Association (ISA). She supports partner conservation programs such as Precision Conservation Management and the Soil and Water Outcomes Fund and manages the grant and partnership strategy for the ISA Agronomy Team. Additionally, Megan serves as the carbon market and farmer conservation program expert for ISA.

This presentation was featured at Soybean Summit at February 2, 2023.
