Recently members of the Nebraska Corn Growers Association (NeCGA), should have received a copy of the Carbon Markets 101 Guide in the mail. The information-packed booklet is meant to provide background and an introduction into many areas of carbon markets. It also includes key questions members should be asking when considering signing up for carbon programs.

“Our membership has been asking a lot of questions regarding carbon markets and the opportunities it may provide their operation,” said Andy Jobman, farmer from Gothenburg and president of NeCGA. “The goal with the carbon publication was to answer those questions and provide a foundation for our members to have as they navigate the many carbon market programs.”

This guide is currently available to members of the association only. Copies will be included with any new memberships sent out this summer. Those interested in receiving a copy are encouraged to join the association at or by calling the association office at (402) 438-6459.
