Agriculture is in crisis. Low commodity prices, higher input costs and urbanization have made it difficult to make a decent living on the farm. Farming is/has been a significant source of CO2 in the atmosphere. But conversely, agriculture can be an important solution to high atmospheric concentrations by sequestering carbon in soils. Dr. Scott Angle, Senior Vice President for Agriculture and Natural Resources, University of Florida discusses how rewarding farmers for carbon sequestration along with other “ecosystem services” might just be the means to assure profitability and survival.
