HOW MUCH CARBON SOIL ABSORBS?
Agricultural soil holds an enormous potential to mitigate climate change by storing carbon. Carbon Action Field Observatory program improves soil health, increase and verifies soil carbon sequestration – and makes the progress visible.
A hectare of agricultural land can store 200 - 1000 kg of carbon annually. Soil carbon storage helps to mitigate climate change and ensure food production.
Data collecting test sites
The data comes straight from 100 carbon farms and intensive test sites. The data is used also to scientifically quantify the changes in the soil carbon storage.
Carbon farming practices
Each farm is different and so is the mix of the practices used. Active monitoring of the impact of the practices helps to develop farming and the research.
MULTIPLE BENEFITS FROM CARBON FARMING
Carbon Action Platform develops and researches ways of accelerating soil carbon sequestration and verifying the results scientifically. Carbon farming nurtures soil and secures sustainable food production. In Carbon Action project scientists, farmers and companies work together to enhance carbon storing regenerative agriculture.
