Farm Journal announces the formation of The Carbon Council, comprised of eight farmers and ranchers who actively participate in and advocate for carbon-related programs.
Recognizing the need for thought leadership in the carbon market, Farm Journal stepped up to help the industry navigate the carbon space by assembling this group of diverse leaders in agriculture. These charter members bring a range of expertise and the drive to share the financial and ecological benefits of carbon programs.
Members of The Carbon Council include:
- Rick Clark, Williamsport, Ind.
- Meredith Ellis, Rosston, Texas
- Lukas Fricke, Ulysses, Neb.
- P.J. Haynie, Reedville, Va.
- Trey Hill, Rock Hall, Md.
- Mitchell Hora, Washington, Iowa
- Kyle Mehmen, Plainfield, Iowa
- Ben Riensche, Jessup, Iowa
“Farm Journal is committed to being an advocate for producers from grassroots efforts to top-down efforts in national and state policies,” said Charlene Finck, president of Farm Journal. “We’re proud to form this prestigious council that will provide knowledge in the carbon arena, practical and factual advocacy and a valuable sounding board.”
The group, which will include additional members, meets regularly to discuss the latest development in the carbon space, upcoming innovations and trends/policy developments to watch. Their thought leadership will be valuable for policy makers, carbon market participants and fellow producers.
Farm Journal will leverage the knowledge and experience of The Carbon Council to guide its coverage of carbon-related issues on its more than 20 media platforms including print, digital and broadcast, as well as its work with industry partners to drive conservation and sustainability across all of agriculture.
Farm Journal’s commitment to informing agriculture audiences about carbon-related issues began in 2020 with the launch of the Carbon Innovation Center, which is hosted on AgWeb.com. Farmers, ranchers and industry stakeholders from all segments of agriculture rely on this resource for the latest news and information about carbon initiatives.
