Carbon sequestration solutions for cropping
Carbon sequestration will not provide the entire income for a grain or fodder producing farm but it may be an option that will provide additional income for offsetting on farm expenses such as fuel or fertiliser costs.
Many wetland plants such as sedges are particularly good sequesters of carbon. There is a real potential to capitalise on the ability of these plants for the construction of wetlands for wastewater treatment and for rehabilitation of existing degraded wetland systems. revegetation with native plants.
bushland regeneration Regeneration projects with Australian natives
Revegetation projects require a diversity of plants rather than monocultures. While trees are often carefully selected for such projects grasses and other herbaceous plants should be considered equally important. Many Australian native herbaceous species are also very good carbon sequesters.
rehabilitation of degraded land
On land that has been completely degraded by erosion
|We have screened a a large number of plant species and found that not all have Plantstone carbon. Chickpeas is an example of this.
However, we have established that some varieties of the following economic grass species have Plantstone carbon capabilities.
We have also established that some other plant species and/or varieties of those species have Plantstone carbon capabilities including some;
Other Native and
Introdued herbaceous plants
