Farmers are Capitalizing on Carbon Sequestration: How Much is Your Carbon-Rich Soil Worth? - http://modernfarmer.com/2016/04/carbon-sequestration/?utm_source=PN&utm_medium=Pinterest&utm_campaign=SNAP%2Bfrom%2BModern+Farmer
We Can Reverse Climate Change by the Way We Grow Food - The global food system is responsible for 30-50% of greenhouse gas emission. Regenerative organic agriculture can increase carbon sequestration 100%. in addition, with better soil management, flooding is reduced as healthy soils have a greater capacity to hold stormwater.
While the potential for trees to store carbon is well-known, fewer people are aware of soil carbon sequestration. It is possible that rotational grazing practices can not only support the carbon holding capacity of soils, but also combine raising livestock with the emerging field of carbon farming.
