After the signing of the 2015 Paris Climate Agreement, the documenting decline in the carbon balance will play an increasingly important role in strengthening the competitiveness of products in the global market. In early 2021, the Russian Federation clarified the methodology for accounting for the deposition of greenhouse gases by natural ecosystems, which takes into account forests on agricultural land as part of "managed forests", which allows agricultural producers to demonstrate their contribution to reducing greenhouse gas emissions. A significant reduction in the area of agricultural crops in Russia at the beginning of the XXI century opens up the possibility of expanding the area of "managed" forests on agricultural land. In the Russian Federation, the accounting of emissions into the atmosphere of combustion products, including carbon dioxide, has been conducted for several decades. In modern conditions, it is worth studying the experience of monitoring forests planted in the late twentieth and early twenty-first centuries in Russia as part of the implementation of the Kyoto Protocol in order to sell carbon sequestration quotas. The implementation of the RUSAFOR – SAP project has shown the feasibility of using unused agricultural land for afforestation using technologies that provide the maximum increase in carbon dioxide deposition. This experience can be used to finance carbon-dependent forest plantations to confirm the commitment of food producers to zero carbon emissions. To implement the identified opportunities, it is necessary to take a set of organizational measures, including combining the results of monitoring the state of agricultural land and the impact of agricultural production on the environment in a single information system.
