The conversion of grasslands to row-crop agriculture releases large amounts of carbon from the soil. This Avoided Grassland Conversion (AGC) project ensures that grassland is maintained on the Carroll Ranch in the Bitter Creek badlands of North-Eastern Montana.

The project commenced in late 2016 in conjunction with a conservation easement with The Nature Conservancy.
In addition to delivering emissions reductions to help take urgent action to combat climate change (SDG 13), we expect the project to deliver another benefit. The contributions towards the SDG have been indicatively measured but need to be confirmed:
