Summarizes 14 key research-based findings, from which flow eight priority areas for federal policy reform that incorporate 29 specific policy recommendations.
Provides a roadmap and resource for programs and initiatives that are designing protocols, metrics, or incentives to engage farmers and ranchers in large-scale efforts to enhance GHG mitigation on working agricultural land in the United States.
The Carbon Cycle Institute houses a series of resources on carbon farming techniques, including research on carbon farming techniques and case studies of specific carbon farms.
Surveys studies of agricultural carbon sequestration resulting from one of the most well-publicized sustainable practices: no-till farming.
Explores how soil carbon is sequestered, the state of soil carbon research, and the debate on the extent of its potential. It offers a set of recommendations for ongoing research and highlights the many co-benefits to increasing soil carbon.
Relevant for the sequestration of carbon in rangelands used for livestock grazing.
Provides a review of carbon sequestration opportunities available under various agroforestry practices in temperate North America, and estimates carbon sequestration potential by agroforestry in the US.
Concluded that the expansion of existing USDA conservation practices could lead to the sequestration of 277 million metric tons CO2-e annually by 2050, effectively cutting net agricultural GHGs in half.
