Aggregation of Carbon Credits from No-Till and Reduced Till Agricultural Practice (Pool 2)
The project consists of the aggregation of carbon offsets generated from the direct and indirect reductions of GHG emissions through implementing no-till and reduced till systems on agricultural lands in Alberta. The reduction in frequency and intensity of tillage under a reduced till or no-till system results in reduced fossil fuel use by farm equipment, reduced fossil fuel use for the production of fertilizer and other amendments, and a decrease in the amount of soil carbon and nitrogen that is released to the atmosphere.
Project partners include Agri-Trend Aggregation Inc. and AgShare Agency Ltd.
