supporting the adoption of agricultural practices that sequester carbon into soil

CRA advocates for research, technical assistance, and incentives to support the adoption of agricultural practices that sequester carbon into the soil.

energy intensive industries must adapt

CRA advocates for policies that help energy-intensive industries adapt to potential federal or state carbon reduction policies.

agricultural feed stocks in industrial processes are key to advancing greenhouse gas reductions
