Driving the climate conversation in Indiana

A coalition of food and ag industry groups is working to help agriculture take a leading role in the climate conversation.

Sarah Aubrey, CEO of Indiana-based IN-CLIMATE tells Brownfield the goal isn’t to promote any one type of practice.  “But rather to bring the leaders into the discussion to be better solutions providers and in a better position to talk to their customers about what’s out there,” she says.  “Help them sort through the opportunities for the best fit for their farms and their next generations.  And we’re also just there to provide educational resources.”

She says IN-Climate creates an opportunity to engage industry stakeholders and farmers to discuss practices and collaborate on solutions.  “Carbon markets, that’s still very new,” she says.  “Whether they have livestock, forestry, or row crops, to look at financial incentives.  And then if you look at things like the soil health component.  That can be for downstream financial incentives, with better yields and better soil health.”

IN-CLIMATE is hosting the Indiana Climate Summit focusing on ag as the solution August 23, 200 at the Beck Agricultural Center in West Lafayette, Ind.  For more information or to register click HERE.
