measurement of soil carbon sequestration in agricultural systems method came into effect on 8 February 2018, providing new opportunities for grazing and cropping (including perennial woody horticulture) projects to participate in the Emissions Reduction Fund.
To be eligible to participate under this method, projects must undertake one or more new or materially different activities to build soil carbon on grazing or cropping land to increase soil carbon levels. Projects are required to measure soil carbon stocks throughout the project, and crediting corresponds to the increase in soil carbon levels above baseline levels—deducting any increase in project emissions above baseline levels.
This method provides an alternative to the existing
sequestering carbon in soils in grazing systems method, introducing the option to use calibrated in-field sensors and new soil sampling methods.
