Abstract:

Soil organic carbon (SOC) pool is the largest among the terrestrial pools. The restoration of SOC pool in arable lands represents a potential sink for atmospheric CO2. The management and enhancement of SOC is important for sustainable agriculture. The cropping system and soil type influence crop biomass under different fertilization. Agriculture acts as both the sink and sources of the greenhouse gases .Conservation agriculture play significant role in soil organic carbon sequestration by increasing soil carbon sinks, reducing GHG emission, and contributing biomass feed stocks for energy use. Adoption of conservation agriculture with use of crop residues, mulch and no till farming helps to conserve moisture, reduces soil erosion and enhances soil organic concentration. Sequestering the carbon in the soil plant system through site specific management practice may help to mitigate impact of climate change.


Keywords: Carbon sequestration, Conservation agriculture, GHGs, Soil organic carbon (SOC).
