Carbon Sequestration

Meet your Decarbonization Goals with KhetiBuddy

Every organization today is inclined to reduce their carbon footprint. The total carbon in the environment is however going to remain the same, while the healthy balance of its form constantly changes. That’s where agriculture has the key role to play in form reducing the carbon from environment to maintain the balance.

With KhetiBuddy you can get assistance on carbon farming practices, the science that makes for the gravy for success, combined with power of technology to monitor and compute total carbon sequestered. Contact us here to know how!

Carbon Sequestration Technology

Bring Carbon back into the soil with Carbon Farming

The total carbon in the environment is, however, going to remain the same, while the healthy balance of its form constantly changes. That’s where agriculture has a key role to play in reducing carbon emissions from the environment and maintaining the balance. Carbon sequestration technology and carbon management practices can become significant contributors to organizations' carbon emission reduction goals.

Carbon farming practices are a set of agricultural approaches focused on sequestering atmospheric carbon into the soil, utilizing it as a carbon storage unit, and releasing less carbon back into the environment compared to traditional agricultural practices, such as tillage. By incorporating carbon sequestration technology, these practices ensure that agriculture remains environmentally friendly and can benefit the food production cycle in the long term.

Enabling adoption of carbon sequestering practices

Carbon farming practices includes no-tillage, use of cover crops, application of biologicals, crop diversification among other practices which help store carbon into the soil. There are methodologies at farm level to reduce the GHG emissions as well. The each of these practices are associated with its respective carbon equivalent which will be either sequestered or prevented from the emission, helping businesses compute the impact of carbon farming. KhetiBuddy’s team of agri experts understands the science that goes into carbon farming projects to come up with schedules for various crops and equip organizations with right scientific expertise.

FAQs on CO2

Carbon sequestration technology refers to various methods that are used to remove carbon dioxide (CO2) from the atmosphere and store it in soils, plants, or other materials. In agriculture, carbon sequestration can be achieved through a variety of practices and technologies, including:

Conservation agriculture:
Conservation agriculture involves minimizing soil disturbance, maintaining soil cover, and rotating crops to reduce erosion and improve soil health. Healthy soils can store large amounts of carbon, which helps to reduce greenhouse gas emissions.

Agroforestry:
Agroforestry involves integrating trees into farmland to improve soil health, provide shade, and sequester carbon. Trees absorb CO2 from the atmosphere and store it in their biomass and in the soil.

Cover cropping:
Cover cropping involves planting a crop during the off-season to protect the soil from erosion and improve soil health. Cover crops also absorb CO2 from the atmosphere and store it in the soil.

Biochar:
Biochar is a type of charcoal that is produced by heating organic material in the absence of oxygen. When added to soil, biochar can improve soil health and sequester carbon.

Carbon capture and storage:
Carbon capture and storage involves capturing CO2 emissions from agricultural processes and storing them underground, preventing them from entering the atmosphere.

Carbon sequestration technology can help farmers and agriculture businesses to reduce their carbon footprint and contribute to mitigating climate change. By adopting these practices, farmers can also improve soil health, reduce erosion, and increase yields, leading to more sustainable and profitable agricultural systems.
The three types of carbon sequestration are:

Geological carbon sequestration:
This involves capturing carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions from industrial processes and storing them in geological formations such as deep saline aquifers, depleted oil and gas reservoirs, or unminable coal seams. The CO2 is trapped in these formations and prevented from entering the atmosphere, reducing greenhouse gas emissions.

Biological carbon sequestration:
This involves using vegetation and soils to remove CO2 from the atmosphere and store it as carbon. Biological carbon sequestration can be achieved through practices such as afforestation, reforestation, sustainable agriculture, and conservation of land management. Plants absorb CO2 from the atmosphere during photosynthesis and store it in their biomass and in the soil.

Oceanic carbon sequestration:
This involves enhancing the ability of the ocean to absorb and store carbon by promoting the growth of phytoplankton, which absorb CO2 during photosynthesis, or by adding iron to the ocean, which stimulates the growth of phytoplankton. The phytoplankton then sinks to the ocean floor, sequestering carbon for long periods of time.
Regenerative agriculture:
This involves minimizing soil disturbance, maintaining soil cover, and rotating crops to reduce erosion and improve soil health. Healthy soils can store large amounts of carbon, which helps to reduce greenhouse gas emissions.

Agroforestry:
This involves integrating trees into farmland to improve soil health, provide shade, and sequester carbon. Trees absorb CO2 from the atmosphere and store it in their biomass and in the soil.

Both conservation agriculture and agroforestry are sustainable practices that can help to increase the amount of carbon stored in soils and vegetation, while also providing other benefits such as improved soil health, biodiversity, and resilience to climate change.
Carbon capture in agriculture can be profitable, depending on the specific practices and the market incentives for carbon sequestration. Some farmers and land managers may be able to earn revenue from carbon offset credits, which are a type of tradable carbon credit that represent the reduction or removal of greenhouse gas emissions from the atmosphere.
