Small changes in the amount of carbon stored in soils can have large impacts on the amount of carbon present in the atmosphere and hence help the effort to reduce global warming.
New Zealand scientists have been working on how management practices can be changed to increase the amount of carbon stored in New Zealand grasslands.
A comprehensive review of eight years of work has recently been published in the prestigious international journal Agriculture, Ecosystems and Environment.

This report covers a project to assist the Māori pastoral sector to improve its collective capacity to increase resource efficiency, farm productivity, while reducing GHG emissions. The project was based around the establishment of a network of 29 Māori farms, and intensive modelling on 4 of these farms to investigate and demonstrate the impact of mitigation strategies on farm profitability and GHG emissions.
