APAS says farmers need federal compensation for practices which reduce greenhouse gas emissions

APAS President Todd Lewis says farmers need federal support to help offset the impact of the revamped carbon tax.

Lewis says farmers need recognition for farm practices which cut greenhouse gases.

He says the proposed hike from the current 30 dollar a ton to 170 dollars by 2030 will be costly to farmers.

He says it could push up costs more than 10 dollars an acre.

Lewis says farmers should be federally compensated through a carbon offset for farming practices which reduce greenhouse gases.
