Can carbon sequestration in vineyard soils offset greenhouse gas emissions?
This webinar will explore the possibilities for using carbon sequestration in vineyard soils to offset greenhouse gas emissions. It will cover a range of points including general emissions management, how soil carbon can be measured, and methods to increase and protect the carbon in vineyard soils. It will also include discussion of some of the challenges involved in offsetting greenhouse gas emissions through carbon sequestration and provide an update on changes to the soil carbon methodology that are currently under development.
