CREATING VALUE FROM SOIL ORGANIC CARBON MANAGEMENT
SOIL ORGANIC CARBON
Soil organic carbon is related to agricultural productivity – higher soil carbon levels, greater the productivity. This is a function of soil carbon improving water holding capacity and nutrient availability, plus improving conditions for soil biological activity. There are many active practices that can build soil organic carbon and farmers can get paid for the soil carbon levels they build.
EMISSIONS REDUCTION FUND
The Emissions Reduction Fund (ERF) is the Australian Government’s mechanism for purchasing carbon abatement, in the form Australian Carbon Credit Units (ACCUs) from carbon projects. Soil carbon projects can register under the Measurement of Soil Carbon Sequestration in Agricultural Systems. This is a measurement-based methodology where farmers can implement new activities to build soil carbon and receive carbon credits for measured increases in soil carbon.
