  author={Roberto C{\'e}sar Izaurralde and Julie D. Jastrow and Bruce A. McCarl and James E. Amonette and Vanessa L Bailey and Phil M Jardine and Tristram O. West and Jingfei Zhou},
Improved agricultural, forestry, and land management practices could be used to increase soil carbon and thereby significantly reduce atmospheric CO2 concentration. Understanding biological and edaphic processes that increase and retain soil carbon can lead to specific manipulations for enhancement of soil C sequestration. These manipulations, however, will only be suitable for adoption if they are technically feasible over large areas, economically competitive with alternative greenhouse gas… CONTINUE READING
