Carbon Farming - Global Carbon Cycle
There is currently a lot of interest in carbon sequestration potential of pastures, forests, and rangelands, because of concerns about increasing atmospheric carbon dioxide driving global climate change. Although forest projects have received more attention than pastures and rangelands, grazing lands can store considerable amounts of carbon. In some cases, they can store as much total carbon as forests do. This potential contribution to mitigating human contributions to greenhouse gases is often overlooked because grasslands store most of their carbon below ground, out of sight.
