If farmers are adding strip tillage, cover crops, or perennial crops to their operations, they might be able to receive a carbon credit payment per acre, too. While the market is still new, early adapters need to study so they're prepared.
University of Illinois’s natural resources and environmental sciences professor Richard Mulvaney wanted to know why soil organic carbon matter is disappearing from agriculture fields despite years of intensive residue inputs. So he set out to determine whether nitrogen fertilization might change the composition of corn residue, and whether that impacted carbon sequestration as a result.
A new way of analyzing the chemical composition of soil organic matter will help scientists predict how soils store carbon — and how soil carbon may affect climate in the future, says a Baylor University researcher.
