Is there a carbon capture scheme for permanent pasture?

I ask as my wife and her brother have about 4.8ha’s of permanent pasture made up of two fields.
One day the land may come out of green belt and be developed but in my opinion that won’t happen in my wife’s lifetime.Meanwhile the fields are not stock proof and grassland worn out, so a farmer has a crop of silage /hay off of it, and grazes a few sheep on it for free.
So I am interested to know if there is any way the land would be eligible for any carbon capturing scheme money.Thanks in
advance for any info

Here’s a possible GCSE geography question:

Business A has an area of grass/trees which absorb an estimated tonne of CO2 per year.
Business B emits 1 tonne of CO2 per year.
Business B buys the carbon credit from business A.
How does this help reduce global warming?
Business B goes bankrupt because of the increasing costs of carbon credits thus reducing carbon in the long term.
Business A just plods along sequestering carbon and happy in the fact they had a sustainable Business.

Bonus question, what happens when Business A applies for planning permission...

Do they
A) find they have to buy back carbon certificates at a higher price than they sold them for

B) find they are stuck and unable to get planning, ever

C) carry on, unlike a dog carbon sequestration payments are for Christmas not for life

D) something else?
 
It is all very complex and it takes a long time to understand it but I can assure you it will be financially very beneficial with no long term problems.

Now let me explain how split capital derivatives can also make you money

Business B gets into financial difficulties because of increasing costs of carbon credits so sues business A.
Business A goes bankrupt because it’s a farmer so it must be their fault.

A man has pleaded guilty at Newtownards Magistrates’ Court to waste offences relating to a bonfire next to the electrical sub-station on the Circular Road in Newtownards, Co. Down.

Gareth Gill (51) of Abbot’s Walk, Newtownards pleaded guilty to two charges under the Waste and Contaminated Land (Northern Ireland) Order 1997, for which he was fined £150 each and ordered to pay a £15 offender’s levy

On June 25, 2018, PSNI officers went to Gill’s yard, where they found a large amount of waste consisting of scrap wood, pallets, carpet and underlay.

Discussion with Northern Ireland Environment Agency (NIEA) officers confirmed the site...
