Quantification and certification of organic carbon in Mediterranean agricultural soils
CARBOCERT aims to establish methodologies that will permit measuring carbon in agricultural soils and in fixed and durable structures as a result of the application of sustainable agronomic practices
1. To make agronomic recommendations, which improve the carbon sequestration by the crops studied.
2. Determine methods to be able to objectively quantify carbon fixation.
The project will provide farmers with an opportunity to apply methodologies focused on the standardised quantification of the carbon sequestration of their crops.
CARBOCERT aims to help alleviate one of the major problems arising from the application of intensive practices in Mediterranean agricultural soils, such as the loss of organic carbon in the soil
In addition, these standards will help organisations to achieve Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) 13 and 15:Climate Action and Life on Land.
