Carbon sequestration or carbon dioxide removal is the long-term removal, capture or sequestration of carbon dioxide from the atmosphere to slow or reverse atmospheric CO2 pollution and to mitigate or reverse global warming.
There are many ways to sequestering carbon. The 3 we have found to be the most productive and economical are:
- Rotationally, cell or strip grazing of cattle.
- Mulching multi species crops and grasses back into the paddock.
- Planting of trees and ground cover.
When we remove cattle, the photosynthesis kicks in with regrowth. We have found that we produce more carbon if the crop is mulched and much less if harvested and removed. Go to Latest News, click on Carbon News and follow our complete procedure for sequestering of soil carbon.
Approximately 45% of roots and dry matter return to the soil as carbon.
