Carbon farming: A pragmatic approach to tackle greenhouse gas emission
Samruthi M, Kannan V and A Bharathi
Carbon farming implies the transfer of atmospheric GHG (Greenhouse gas) into other long-lived global pools including oceanic, pedologic, biotic, and geological strata to reduce the net rate of increase in atmospheric CO2. The literature summarized providing a perspective on how agriculture can reduce its GHG burden through conservation measures. A terrestrial ecosystem like bamboos can sequestrate carbon at a much faster rate. Impacts of agricultural practices and strategies to prevent GHG emissions like conservation tillage, Biochar and bioenergy are reviewed which helps to mitigate adverse effects of GHG in the atmosphere. Seed weed aquaculture contributes to reduce GHG through photosynthesis where they absorb carbon and generate oxygen which in turn reduces the effect of ocean acidification.
