In this article, we will discuss Carbon Farming (Definition). So, let’s get started.
- Carbon farming (also known as carbon sequestration) is a system of agricultural management that helps the land store more carbon and reduce the amount of Greenhouse Gases (GHGs) that it releases into the atmosphere.
- It involves practices that are known to improve the rate at which CO2 is removed from the atmosphere and converted to plant material and soil organic matter.
- Carbon farming is successful when carbon gains resulting from enhanced land management or conservation practices exceed carbon losses.
