Description
 
Atmospheric concentrations of greenhouse gases can be reduced by withdrawing carbon from the atmosphere & sequestering it in soils & biomass. This report analyzes the performance of alternative incentive designs & payment levels if farmers were paid to adopt land uses & management practices that raise soil carbon levels. The most cost-effective payment design adjusts payment levels to account both for the length of time farmers are willing to commit to sequestration activities & for net sequestration. A 50-percent-cost-share for cropland conversion to forestry or grasslands would increase sequestration at low carbon payment levels but not at high payment levels. Illustrations.
