Soil Carbon Sequestration
Soil carbon sequestration is the process of capturing and storing atmospheric carbon dioxide in soil. In terms of natural processes, this is done primarily through photosynthesis and organic matter decomposition. In order to increase the amount of sequestered carbon however, various agricultural methods can be used, such as applying compost, switching to no-till farming, incorporating managed grazing, and planting cover crops. These processes can help to mitigate climate change, improve soil fertility, and increase agricultural productivity, all while promoting sustainable land management practices.
