This is the start of the whole carbon farming story which is only just beginning in Australia. It is known variously as Organic, Biological or Regenerative Farming (the preferred name). RF, under the guise of cover cropping, has been going for 20 years in the US and Canada. Although not yet widely adopted, the principles are well established. Whether realised or not the aim is cheaper and more sustained production and profit by restoring soil carbon to original levels. The organic carbon content of farmed soils worldwide has declined by at least half from their virgin state. This has gone into the atmosphere and the oceans. Subconsciously a lot of farmers realise something is wrong but do not know how to do it differently. Serious research effort and effective extension is needed to bring about this very necessary change.
