HUTCHINSON, MN (DTN) – For a landowner looking to turn a quick profit, the carbon credit market is not the best option, but it can offer supplementary income for conservation practices that are part of a long-term management strategy.

“This isn’t a get-rich-quick scheme,” said Gary Wyatt, an extension educator with the University of Minnesota. But it can be a nice payment for practices that meet a producer’s short-term and long-term goals.

“CRP (ground) can qualify for carbon credits,” Wyatt said February 24 at a carbon credit workshop in Hutchinson, Minn. Besides hunting leases, it’s one of the only ways to earn an additional payment on that land.
