Summary
The term 'carbon farming' is used to describe a suite of crops and agricultural practices that sequester carbon in the soil. If widely implemented, these practices have the capacity to sequester hundreds of billions of tons of carbon from the atmosphere in the coming decades. Combined with a massive global reduction in fossil fuel emissions, it can bring us back from the brink of disaster and return our atmosphere to the 'magic number' of 350 parts per million of carbon dioxide. These practices can also feed people, build more fertile soils, and contribute to ecosystem health
