Counting Carbon on the Farm: Science, Systems and Support Poster (includes student competition)

sequestration in soils and biomass. GHG mitigation potential in the agriculture sector is receiving increased attention from policy makers and industry. A major challenge is developing robust and practical measurement, monitoring and verification systems to quantify GHG reductions/C sequestration. Such systems are key to support policies and incentives for producers to adopt practices that contribute to GHG mitigation, e.g., through governmental programs, participation in C offset projects or low-carbon food production. The symposium will focus on research, development and applications of farm to project-scale systems to support GHG reductions from soils and land use systems.
