  • Eligible Crops: Programs are available for farmers growing corn, soybeans, wheat, canola, peanuts, cotton, and sorghum.

  • Carbon Intensity Scoring: A farm's CI score is calculated by determining the total CO2 emissions per bushel of grain produced. FBN® offers programs that pay a premium for lower CI scores.
