Study day: Carbon Farming

Event duration: 5 to 6 hours
Venue: Inagro, Ieperseweg 87, 8800 Rumbeke-Beitem, Belgium
The agricultural sector has a high potential to contribute to regional and national climate objectives, for instance through carbon sequestration in the soil and stimulating biodiversity. Collaborations with landowners and partners in and outside the agrofood chain are needed to achieve these goals. With this study day, we aim to increase awareness on possibilities, stress the importance and advantages of collaboration, with inspiring examples, and illustrate soil quality aspects in the field. Through Carbon Farming, one aims to: enhance the organic component of the soil; actively capture CO2 from the atmosphere; increase soil biodiversity; and improve the nutrient and moisture capacity for crops.
