    • Importance of FMP Record keeping Communication Keeps our farming operation organized Easy transition from class to class
    • Carbon Credits A carbon credit is a tradable certificate The company selling the carbon credit must reduce one tonne of carbon to generate the credit A company can generate one tonne of carbon per credit Main purpose of carbon credits:  Reduce Greenhouse Gas emissions  Make large industrial companies pay to emit carbon dioxide/toxic gases  Reward farmers for reducing carbon emissions
    • Carbon Credits Reduced or zero tillage practices generate carbon credits Growingcrops take in CO2 and emit O2 through photosynthesis Carbon credits provide added income Farmers who practice no till will receive more credits than those who practice minimum till
    • Carbon Credits After 15 to 30 years it is estimated that the soil will reach its capacity to hold carbon in a stable state Lakeland College redeemed carbon credits this year Lakeland College received $1/acre over 3500 acres There is a $0.30 deduction on the 1dollar which made our total earnings $2500

    • Canadian Peas Canadian peas production fell by 30% largely due to lower harvested area in Saskatchewan Exports are expected to fall to 2.1 million tonnes Other major markets are in China and Bangladesh Market support may come from a smaller US crop

    • Market Outlook Canadian dry pea prices have been supported this crop year by a smaller world dry pea crop and steady world demand Bottom line for 2011-12, the average price is expected to rise due in part to a tight Canadian and world supply
    • MarketingFlaxJustin P
    • Where is it grown? Themajority of the flax (80%) is grown in south-eastern Saskatchewan Total seeded & harvested flax acres have been quite low in the 10 year average
    • Why is Flax Acreage Decreasing?  Competition from Kazakhstan & Russia  Under pressure due to lower oilseed and vegetable oil prices  European Union wanting organic flax
