Rice Producers

Rice producers in the USA that adopt specific sustainable rice cultivation practices can reduce Methane emissions from their rice fields. By working with Climate Smart Group growers can earn a new revenue steam from these emission reductions. We do this by converting the emission reductions into carbon credits and selling them into California’s Carbon market.

The rice cultivation practices that are able to generate carbon credits vary between California and the Mid-South. Qualifying practices in the Mid-South include:

  • Alternate Wetting and Drying (Data Requirements)
  • Early Drainage in Preparation for Harvest Activities

Qualifying practices in California include:

  • Early Drainage in Preparation for Harvest Activities
  • Dry Seeding
