Soil carbon farming: What's in it for me?

There is increasing emphasis on the importance of agricultural soils as a store for tonnes of carbon each year, not least in terms of helping the sector meet its commitment to net zero by 2040.

The panel explores soil carbon farming not only as a possible future revenue stream but also in terms of how regenerative farming practices can help store carbon to improve soil health and overall productivity.
