carbon sequestration

  • Carbon sequestration is the removal of carbon dioxide from the atmosphere and storing it in soil or vegetation.
  • Direct Seeding is the easiest & most cost effective way to establish native vegetation for carbon sequestration.
  • Managed regeneration of natural vegetation can fix up to 1000 tonnes of carbon per hectare.
  • The agricultural industry is likely to be required to offset its emissions before 2015.
  • Establishing shelter belts or woodlots by direct seeding may be the best way to achieve this or to accumulate carbon credits for trading.
