In this webinar, Dr Mark Farrell from CSIRO will provide an update on carbon stocks in Australian agriculture, the importance of soil carbon in food production and the best ways to increase carbon stocks. Prof. Tim Cavagnaro from the University of Adelaide will discuss why grapegrowers might want to sequester carbon in their vineyards and how they can do this. Tim will focus on the importance of building soil carbon to improve soil structure, water infiltration rates and soil fertility. He will also provide practical advice about how growers can increase soil carbon levels in their vineyards by maintaining plant cover. Joseph Marks from the University of Adelaide will discuss the economic and environmental benefits of building soil carbon and role of under-vine management in protecting and increasing soil organic carbon stocks.
