A Closer Look at RIPE100 Qualifying Practices: Forage and Biomass Planting
At RIPE, we continually work to expand the set of RIPE100 qualifying practices. Here we highlight forage and biomass planting, which provides over $100 per acre in environmental benefits.
Producers who plant forage and biomass provide significant climate benefits. The practice reduces greenhouse gas emissions nearly 1 metric ton per acre, which is worth $50 per acre. However, the practice can also deliver nearly $240 in water quality benefits per acre, reaching a total of $287 per acre.
