How can we farm carbon into the ground?
Carbon Farming involves planting Sphagnum moss on lowland peat or agricultural peat soils as a permanent crop. It is grown in a managed way to maximise growth to establish full cover and associated carbon sequestration.
This can be a valuable land-use option on poor agricultural peat soils, contributing positively to greenhouse gas emission reduction targets.
Often these sites would be emitting significant carbon due to historic drainage for land management. With Carbon Farming, these emissions are stopped, and more carbon will be sequestered and permanently locked away in the future.
Sphagnum has a huge amount of climate benefits, find out more about Carbon Benefits.
