Abstract

Several state and federal efforts have been launched to reduce concentrations of carbon dioxide, methane, and nitrous oxide in the atmosphere. Ranchers can contribute to these efforts and create a new marketable commodity at the same time. Rangelands can be used to reduce atmospheric concentrations of carbon dioxide by increasing the rate at which rangeland soils store carbon. Some agricultural producers increased and diversified their income income risk by selling additional carbon to industries that emit large quantities of greenhouse gases. Towards the future, the emerging market for environmental services is expected to open new economic opportunities.
