Soil Carbon Management highlights the significant economic, environmental, and societal benefits that result from land management practices that maintain or increase soil carbon. Each chapter addresses a particular concern and potential options to manage it along with their real and perceived benefits. In particular, the book focuses on the benefits of soil carbon sequestration, specifically for policymakers, in addition to the potential for agricultural soils to generate soil carbon credits that could be traded in the broader greenhouse gas credit market. This well-illustrated text also includes charts and figures that highlight important points.
