Carbon Farm Plans

Napa RCD and its LandSmart® RCD partners are working with North Coast farmers to develop Carbon Farm Plans. Carbon Farm Plans identify practices that allow agricultural operations to increase carbon sequestration and reduce greenhouse gas emissions, and quantify climate benefits of implementing practices at the farm scale. Carbon Farm Plan practices also have potential to improve soil health, water holding capacity,  crop and forage production, water conservation, and on-farm habitat. Carbon Farm Plans may be developed for vineyard, range, orchard, and forest properties.
