Soil is a powerful tool. It stores more than three times the amount of CO2 compared to the air, forests and other vegetation. As a farmer or a grower you hold the key to this. Tilling the soil less often or sowing green manures are measures you can take to improve the carbon storage. The Soil Carbon Check then offers insight in how much carbon is stored, in the quality of the soil carbon and how to improve the soil carbon content.
Society recognizes the potential of soil as a storage vessel for CO2. Various systems are being developed to reward farmers for their efforts to capture CO2. For example, farmers can earn carbon credits by offsetting CO2 emissions from industry.
The Soil Carbon Check provides insight into the amount of CO2 captured in the soil.
