Soil Carbon now easy to measure

Veris Technologies makes soil probes that can be dragged across a paddock taking hundreds of measurements per second. They use Near Infrared Spectroscopy which can detect what soil contains down to 60cm. The company (from Kentucky) claims it can measure to within 90% certainty - this makes trade possible. We are negotiating with Veris to have them present the technology at the 2010 carbon Farming Conference & Expo in Dubbo, 27-28 October.
