Eurosite-ELCN Agriculture, Biodiversity and Climate Working Group Webinar:
Carbon Sequestration on Arable Farms and How to Measure It
Monday April 4, 10-11am Central European Time
An important arena for carbon sequestration is sequestration on working agricultural lands as a result of sustainable agricultural practices. However, measuring and proving these sequestration results poses a significant challenge. Addressing this challenge is essential if farmers are to be rewarded and incentivized for their contributions to carbon sequestration.
This webinar will explain how, within the wider European Carbon+Farming Coalition, Bayer's European Carbon Programme is testing various criteria that influence soil carbon field conditions, across a variety of farm types. The intention is to come up with a set of criteria that can validate improved carbon sequestration in the context of Integrated Crop Management trials.
