increase soil carbon

Catalogue: GRDC Updates
If we use the same bulk density as above (1.2 g/cm3) and restrict our calculations to the top 10 cm of soil where organic carbon is most easily increased, at 2% carbon the soil would contain 24 tonnes C/ha... In Figure 4 the estimated changes in soil organic carbon content (%) of the 0-10 cm layer that occur with different levels of wheat production (grain yield) are presented... Results indicate that a sustained productivity of about 4 tonnes/ha/year of wheat grain yield is required to maintain the equilibrium soil carbon content at Roseworthy (Figure 4 a)...
