Abstract

Sequestration of atmospheric carbon is one of the mitigation measures for countering the anthropogenic climate change due to excessive emission of greenhouse gases. However, soil carbon sequestration measures need to be sustainable and significant, without substantial conflict between groups with diverse priorities. Carbon sequestration potential of soils in reduced clearing of primary ecosystems has attained substantial importance in modern agricultural farming systems apart from climate change adaptation. The adoption of diverse management strategies of carbon sequestration in croplands, grasslands etc., may provide potential estimation of carbon sequestration potential. Thus, the identification of any system for efficient land-based carbon sequestration therefore, requires a quantitative estimate on a regional setting. Research needs to be done to identify both horizontal and vertical agricultural technologies that restore carbon pools and soil quality and create tools to measure, monitor and verify soil-carbon pools and fluxes of greenhouse gas emissions.
