  • Scientists with the European Commission develop a new predictive model that shows that soil organic carbon stocks will increase in Europe by 2050 with expected land use patterns. They report that changing cropland to grassland sequesters the same amount of carbon as planting tress on old farm fields. Does this give new hope that changes in ag practices (grassmilk dairies, anyone?) can result in meaningful amounts of carbon sequestration, perhaps even mitigating the impacts of climate change? Read their study published in 2016 in Science of the Total Environment here.
