    The Great Soil Carbon Catalyst?

    The Great Soil Carbon Catalyst?

    How could the emerging market for soil carbon support farmers to regenerate soils?

    Soil carbon offers so many benefits both above and below the soil surface, from improving farm productivity to revenue raising in carbon trading. But while the case for building soil carbon is clear, the carbon market is still evolving. So what’s the potential, what are the risks and what can be done to unlock the potential of soil carbon as an enabler of better farm management and soil stewardship? In this episode we talk to farmers, scientists and policy makers to explore the soil carbon opportunity.

    Thanks to all our guests for their time and insights.
