Healthy soil is the building block of vitality for plants, animals and humans. What?s more, healthy soil can be our leading tool to fight global warming.
There?s a clear ?carbon connection? farmers can make between storing biological carbon in soils and removing carbon dioxide from the atmosphere. In the near future, farmers and landowners who farm in ways that increase their capacity for carbon sequestration can be financially rewarded for their efforts. That?s right?extra income for using agriculturally sound practices that also build soil health.
