A Risk Analysis of Carbon Sequestration in Claypan Soil with Conservation Tillage Systems and Nitrogen Fertilizers for Grain Sorghum and Soybean

The economic feasibility of using conservation-tillage rather than conventional-tillage to sequester carbon with the use of alternative nitrogen fertilizer sources for a grain sorghum-soybean rotation is evaluated. Results indicate which system provides the highest net returns, which system is preferred by risk averse managers, and the price of carbon credits required for management system adoption under alternative risk aversion preferences.
