AFT's On-The-Ground Projects

AFT pioneered the use of conservation risk management tools to protect producers from financial loss when they implement healthy farming practices. Now we’re involved in setting up markets, using these tools to help farmers qualify to sell credits.


As the caretakers of America's landscape, farmers and ranchers produce significant environmental benefits - such as helping mitigate global warming, providing cleaner water, protecting wildlife habitat, and improving soil health -and they are capable of much more, given proper incentives and cost-share. Throughout the farm and environmental communities, there is increasing interest in monetizing these ecosystem services - both through public and private dollars--to make "growing green" a reality.
