Carbon management on vegetable farms – emissions, sequestration and beyond
Carbon is the main component of soil organic matter and helps give soil its water-retention capacity, its structure, and its fertility. The management of carbon is not only important for soil health and productive vegetable crops, but is also increasingly important in carbon markets and reducing the effects of climate change.
Watch industry leading researchers, practitioners and growers who tackle some of the most important questions about carbon management on vegetable farms during this webinar.
- What is the importance of soil carbon in vegetable production systems?
- Why should vegetable growers care about reducing carbon emissions?
- How do you calculate an emissions profile for your vegetable farm?
- What are the opportunities for vegetable growers under the Emissions Reduction Fund?
- When could participating in the ERF be viable for annual horticulture?
This session is complemented by a range of useful podcasts and articles as part of the Soil Wealth ICP project team's global scan and review.
