Alexandra Kravchenko, Michigan State University professor in the Department of Plant, Soil and Microbial Sciences, and several of her colleagues recently discovered a new mechanism determining how carbon is stored in soils that could improve the climate resilience of cropping systems and also reduce their carbon footprints.
Julian Gold, an arable farmer from Oxfordshire has been announced as the winner of the 2019 Soil Farmer of the Year.
Come along to our soils workshop where we will be talking about our soil carbon project, looking at the initial results and discussing year 2's activity.
We are all aware that soil health and soil roganic matter are key areas of policy discussion and debate at the moment. Our project, working with a network of famers is looking at how to test soil carbon sequestration and a range of other soil health measures and how soil carbon impacts on the whole farm carbon footprint.
