Comparisons

Review the details of the two programs you selected below. Use the side-by-side comparison to identify which program is best for your farm. Return to your program list using the back arrow or the button at the bottom of the page.

Carbon Programs: Programs claim a farmer’s carbon asset and may require new practices to be eligible for payments.
Government Programs: Programs are funded with public/government funds and cannot be combined with other government programs. However, it may be possible to stack payments from government programs with privately funded programs.
Climate Smart Commodity Programs (Carbon): Programs often combine public and private funding, and therefore farmers often cannot combine enrollment with other programs.
Climate Smart Commodity Programs (Non-carbon): Programs often combine public and private funding. Because carbon credits are not claimed, payments from these programs may be able to be combined with payments from carbon programs.
