Before initiating a particular strategy of carbon sequestration/emissions reductions management options for agricultural and forest lands, the effectiveness of each option needs be evaluated in terms of the quantity of carbon potentially available and its marginal cost. In this section, the potential CO2e gain, available land area, and marginal costs of each of the land management strategies are compared, providing the necessary information to inform the choice of any given strategy. This comparison allows for an unbiased presentation of the potential quantity and cost of carbon benefits only, other factors beyond the carbon sequestration potential of a particular land management use are outside the scope of this analysis.
