Conference Proceeding

Carbon dioxide Sequestration in Agriculture

Ms. Ambika Sharma

This presentation shows how regenerative agricultural practices can play a major role in turning back the Carbon clock, reducing atmospheric CO2 concentration while boosting soil productivity. It depicts about effects of Carbon sequestration on soil. Degradation of soils from unsustainable agriculture and other development has released billions of tons of Carbon in the atmosphere. So effective land restoration can play a major role in sequestering Co2 and slowing climate change. World’s cultivated soils have lost 50-70% of their original Carbon stock, much of which has oxidised from exposure to become Co2. Bringing carbon back into soils has to be done not only to offset fossil fuels but also to feed our growing global population because we can’t feed people if soil is degraded. And, the main aim is to increase soil productivity and ultimately benefiting farmers
