Four Arkansas farmers were the some of the first recipients of carbon credits for sustainable practices in the United States.

According to Talk Business & Politics, the credits were primarily issued due to the reduction in methane produced.

The amount of the credit was not released.

Farmers from California and Mississippi were part of the program.

A total of seven farmers in the United States received the credits.
