The term 'carbon farming' is used to describe a suite of crops and agricultural practices that sequester carbon in the soil.

What if our agricultural practices could stabilize, or even reverse these trends? The Biochar Solution explores the dual function of biochar as a carbon-negative energy source and a potent soil-builder.

Including the energy required to make the farm's machinery lowers the figure to
50 percent, but this is still a huge gain over the standard American farm.55 Marty
Bender, research director at Sunshine Farm, notes that “carbon farming is a
temporary solution.” He points to a recent paper in Science showing that even if
all U.S. soils were returned to their pre-plow carbon content—a theoretical
maximum for how much carbon they could lock up—this would be equal to only
two decades of ...

One is the issue of, essentially, the carbon costs of inputs to farming. It takes
energy to make fertilizer and to package it, transport it, and so on. It takes energy
to move manure from one place to another. It takes energy to pump water for
irrigation. So, one argument has been that the carbon costs of carbon
sequestration balance or overcome the benefits. But it is a misleading argument, I
think, because basically the practices that put carbon in the soil that are better for
sequestration are ...

However, "carbon farming is a temporary solution," according to Marty Bender of
the Land Institute's Sunshine Farm in Salina, Kansas. He points to a recent paper
in Science showing that even if America's soils were returned to their pre-plow
carbon content — a theoretical maximum for how much carbon they could lock up
— this would be equal to only two decades of American carbon emissions. "That
is how little time we will be buying," Bender says, "despite the fact that it may take

"We really should be focusing on energy efficiency and energy conservation to
reduce the carbon emissions by our national economy," Bender concludes.
That's why Sunshine Farm, which Bender directs, has been farming without fossil
fuels, fertilizers, or pesticides in order to reduce its contribution to climate change
and to find an inherently local solution to a global problem. As the name implies,
Sunshine Farm runs essentially on sunlight. Homegrown sunflower seeds and ...

The gentlemen present were well aware that the carbon of vegetables was
principally derived from the carbonic acid of the air, although a small portion was
doubtless derived from the carbonic acid generated in the soil, by the
decomposition of vegetable matters, and held in solution by the water contained
therein. These substances also contained nitrogen, but the nitrogen of plants was
principally derived from the ammonia which was brought down by the rains, from
the atmosphere, ...
