Researchers question published no-till soil organic carbon sequestration rates

Researchers question  published no-till soil organic carbon sequestration rates | Climate change | Scoop.it
For the past 20 years, researchers have published soil organic carbon sequestration rates. Many of the research findings have suggested that soil organic carbon can be sequestered by simply switching from moldboard or conventional tillage systems to no-till systems. However, there is a growing body of research with evidence that no-till systems in corn and soybean rotations without cover crops, small grains, and forages may not be increasing soil organic carbon stocks at the published rates.

Mushrooms Could Be Key To Safe And Natural Carbon Sequestration

Mushrooms Could Be Key To Safe And Natural Carbon Sequestration | Climate change | Scoop.it

Mushrooms are one of the most powerful items in the Super Mario video game franchise, providing extra lives and making characters stronger. So wouldn’t it be great if real-life mushrooms could help the fight against climate change by boosting carbon sequestration?

James Lloyd's curator insight, October 11, 2013 3:59 AM

it should be reasonable to expect the market to grow by 50-100% given the 120m tonnes of MSW & C&I waste the UK produces.  Of which putrescibles make up between 20-30% and organics in total equate to nearer 60% (from a landfill diversion target point of view).
