Q24. How to improve soil carbon?

Answer:Answer: See other Q&A addressing this topic (www.agpath.com.au/Information/FAQ).
Generally, less disturbance of the soil through ploughing or tilling; increasing organic matter with compost, compost tea and green crops such as lupins, broad beans, lucerne etc., and working them into the soil for nitrogen and organic matter. Pasture cropping so that the soil is never bare. Grow deep roots perennials to aerate the soil. Minimise or, better still, stop using chemical salts. Improve soil biology activity.
