Maximizing gains of soil carbon

Organic matter

This is, in many ways, the easiest method with the most instantaneous results. There are three main types of organic matter that can be added:

  • Green organic matter - e.g. green manures
  • Brown organic matter - e.g. compost and manures
  • Black organic matter - e.g. biochar

It's important to also have a cultivation strategy that minimises losses, if adding organic matter in to a cultivated system.
