Carbon Sequestration in Organic Farming

Raymond Liu, Jianming M. Xu, C. Edward Clapp

Institute of Soil and Water Resources, Zhejiang University.


Organic farming has been developed as a new mode of farming vs. conventional farming. Evidence showed that organic farming management can well maintain the soil carbon up to 2–3 times higher in organic matter content. Obviously, it can effectively reduce the carbon emission to the atmosphere. Higher organic matter contents in soil can also boost soil microbial activities, which will benefit soil conservation and plant growth.
