The new soil carbon method will help support more uptake of soil projects by reducing the costs of running soil carbon projects by using new soil carbon models. This is consistent with the Low Emissions Technology statement. Reducing the cost of soil carbon measurements has the potential to unlock soil carbon sequestration on a broad scale and improve farm productivity including enhanced crop yields and boosted resilience to drought and erosion.
The 2021 soil carbon method was made by the Minister in December 2021.
For more information on the method visit the
soil carbon method page.
For information on public consultation and consideration of the method by the Emissions Reduction Assurance Committee (ERAC), visit the
2021 soil carbon method page on the
Department of Industry, Science, Energy and Resources’ consultation hub.
