Field Measurements (How Carbon Sampling Differs from Fertility Sampling)
Farmers don’t get paid by the acre for their crops. Why should they be paid by the acre for their carbon? Farmers will only get the highest return for their carbon if it can be accurately measured across their farm. Adapting soil sampling and scanning technology for soil carbon farming will allow farms to sell their carbon at the highest value for each megaton sequestered. Field measurements of carbon sequestration will help legitimize agriculture’s positive role and ensure our industry is invited to have a seat at the carbon table.
