Abstract:

Agricultural soils are capable of being a source or sink for atmospheric carbon dioxide depending upon the supervision practices and land use systems. Progressive enlarge in the concentration of green house gas (GHGs) since industrial era has created worldwide attention in identifying strategies to lessen concentration of these gases in the environment. Climate change has emerged a most important face up to not only for sustainable agriculture but also for human arrangement. Effect on climate change including global warming with its unhelpful impact on the living things on the earth is now global issue and appropriate strict day by day. Increase in the carbon dioxide concentration with the results of global warming in the atmosphere which is directly or indirectly related to climate change. The human activities that change the composition of global atmosphere adversely impact. In the systematic models and observations over the past one thousand years provide evidences that global warming may due to anthropogenic enhance in (GHG’s) including that of carbon dioxide, methane, carbon monoxide. The increased atmospheric concentration of CO2 may power soil temperature, distribute erratic pattern of precipitation, evaporation and ensuing changes in the physico-chemical and biological properties in soil. Hence there is need has stress to reduce the concentration of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere and increase the carbon concentration in the soil through the process known as carbon sequestration. Carbon sequestration is an essential technology for the preservation of optimum CO2 level in the atmosphere, which in-turn grades in reducing the recent increase in atmospheric carbon dioxide, contributing to global warming. A substantial part of depleted soil organic carbon pool can be restored from side to side change of marginal lands into restorative land use systems, embracing of conservation tillage with cover crops and crop residue, mulch, nutrient cycling and use of organic manure and other systems for sustainable management of soil and water possessions.
