Ohio River Basin Trading Project

Working with local farmers and private landowners, the project funds conservation practices that reduce pollution to U.S. waterways and protect ecosystems. Credits are created through the installation of conservation practices with private landowners in Ohio, Indiana, and Kentucky. Nearly all the landowners are small family farmers producing corn, soy, wheat, beef, and milk. Projects are intended to improve water quality while maintaining crop yields for farmers. Typical practices include cover crops, reduced fertilizer application, riparian buffer strips, cattle exclusion fencing to prevent erosion of natural waterways, milk house waste management systems, manure wetland treatment systems, and cattle heavy use areas that allow for effective manure storage and management. Several projects that involve the planting of forests are also in development. Contracts with farmers range from 5 years for seasonal practices (i.e. cover crops) to 40 years for forest planting.
