Understanding climate change on the farm

1.Land based climate change: Climate during the interglacial period currently occurring, changes due to a number of factors. More recently, impacts by humans has become one of the factors. There has been a strong international focus on the global increase in greenhouse gases but the local factors impacting climate change have been largely ignored. Learn how to get more ra...

Key benefits of increasing soil carbon

1.Improving soil carbon has many benefits: Soil carbon management has a direct effect on the profitability of the farm. Increase in soil carbon is strongly associated with increased profit. Management methods that increase soil carbon also promote rainfall infiltration, nutrient storage, increased biological activity and reduced evaporation ,

How does measuring soil carbon improve my farm?

What you measure is what you achieve. As increased soil carbon results in increased profit. Measuring soil carbon and managing to increase carbon will not only lift profit but also improve ecology and in some systems promote a better life balance for the farm family.

Know how much you are sequestering.

Sequestrating carbon depends not only on the microbial community to promote and breakdown plant matter but also on infiltrating rainfall and charge in the soil to hold organic matter in the soil. Ensuring there is a balance between carbon nitrogen, phosphorous and sulfur is just as essential as maximising soil moisture and soil charge to achieve the fastest sequestration of organic carbon.
