Department of Agriculture to Spend $1 Billion in Grants to Support Climate Friendly Agriculture

1 min read

Writing for Reuters, journalist Karl Plume reports that US Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack has announced plans to invest $1 billion in projects that promote farming, ranching and forestry practices that cut greenhouse gas emissions or capture and store climate-warming carbon.

According to the report, “Qualified projects could include initiatives that cut or capture methane emissions on dairy farms or programs which expand the use of farming practices that soak up more climate-warming carbon from the atmosphere and store it in the soil.”

Software applications can play a leading role in this effort by helping to identify the best time to apply specific types of fertilizer to minimize their use and to help locate sources of methane or other carbon emissions that contribute to global warming.
