Here's an interesting article about reducing carbon emissions through
farming:

<<Tests show microbe-rich soils produced by the new methods can store
between five to 10 tonnes a hectare of carbon a year, compared with
less than 1.5 using traditional farming systems.

''We are talking about a quantum difference,'' Mr Wiley said.

Under the new system, currently being tested in WA and north-west NSW,
farmers increase soil carbon by planting sub-tropical grasses with
cereal crops or rows of the fodder shrub, tagasaste.>>
