    The Tax Benefits of Conservation Easements

    By Tyler Davis

    Published 2 weeks ago

    Conservation easements have grown in popularity in recent years, partly due to the impactful tax benefits available to the donor. A conservation easement is a restriction on the use of land, voluntarily granted by the landowner to a conservation organization or to a government sponsored entity. The general rule for permanent conservation easement donations is that the property owner can take a charitable contribution tax deduction on their return for the difference in the fair market value of the land before the conservation easement and after the conservation easement. Currently, the donor can take a conservation easement charitable deduction of up to 50% of their taxable income in a given year. Should the value of the conservation easement charitable deduction exceed this taxable income threshold in the first year, the taxpayer can use the remaining deduction over a fifteen-year carryforward period (no carryback is allowed and the same 50% taxable income limit applies during the carryforward period)...

    The Tax Benefits of Conservation Easements

    By Tyler Davis

    Published 2 weeks ago

    Conservation easements have grown in popularity in recent years, partly due to the impactful tax benefits available to the donor. A conservation easement is a restriction on the use of land, voluntarily granted by the landowner to a conservation organization or to a government sponsored entity. The general rule for permanent conservation easement donations is that the property owner can take a charitable contribution tax deduction on their return for the difference in the fair market value of the land before the conservation easement and after the conservation easement. Currently, the donor can take a conservation easement charitable deduction of up to 50% of their taxable income in a given year. Should the value of the conservation easement charitable deduction exceed this taxable income threshold in the first year, the taxpayer can use the remaining deduction over a fifteen-year carryforward period (no carryback is allowed and the same 50% taxable income limit applies during the carryforward period)...

    What’s root knot nematode?

    By Darren Chan

    Published 6 months ago

    Root-knot nematodes are one of the three most economically damaging genera of plant-parasitic nematodes on horticultural and field crops.

They dwell in the soil, attack the roots of the plant to extract water and nutrients. As a result, large galls or “knots” can form throughout the root systems of infected plants.

    What’s the function of Mycorrhiza?

    By Darren Chan

    Published 10 months ago

    Introduction of MycorrhizaExcessive dependence on chemical fertilizers can result in the destruction of a large number of beneficial microbial communities in the soil and a decrease in soil activity. To improve the current soil ecosystem with serious damage and improve soil fertility, it is imperative to supplement soil beneficial microorganisms. The application of microbial fertilizer is the most direct and effective method. Symbiotic bacteria are fungi that need to grow with plants, but do not harm plants and they are beneficial to plant growth.
