Healthy soils, healthy climate

The Carbon Farming project aims for a double goal: mitigate climate change and improve agricultural soils. How? By implementing so called carbon farming techniques, farmers fix CO2 from the atmosphere into carbon in their soils. The extra carbon in the soil improves water holding capacity, soil structure, soil biodiversity and nutrient availability! Healthy soils, healthy climate. A win-win situation.

The seven partners of the Carbon Farming project are working between Sep 2018 and Aug 2021 to increase the implementation of carbon farming techniques in the North Sea Region. We believe that Carbon Farming is not only of interest for farmers, but that the whole society can benefit. Therefore, we want to promote the implementation of carbon farming among farmers. Besides looking at the technical aspects on farm, we also facilitate in developing new business models. Together with farmers and interested parties, in- and outside the food chain.
