Why are soil carbon and density important?

FOCUS

Soil organic matter
and
organic carbon

Soil carbon is important to agricultural systems because it is a key driving variable in overall crop productivity. Its quantification has recently gained importance with the introduction of the United Nations (UN) 4p1000 initiative which aims to mitigate climate change via the sequestration of carbon within agricultural soils thereby reducing atmospheric CO2 (with the added benefit of increased crop productivity and thus increased global food security). As corollary to this initiative some member countries are mobilizing and implementing policies and frameworks to promote increasing agricultural soil carbon (e.g. Australia’s carbon credits/farming initiative – F2018L00089 – in force as of January 2018 which require soil carbon and density information for computation of field scale carbon stock). As a result, technological advances for soil characterization are needed to increase throughput and decrease costs of analyses.
