Perfectly perverse outcome of CFI

FARM A – Degraded soils due to decades of ‘flogging’ the paddocks. Farmer signs a soil carbon contract and introduces new practices that capture Carbon.

FARM B – Soils recovering after 10 years of carbon farming. Farmer forced by terms of trade to sell property. New owner refused access to CFI contract. Introduces ‘flogging’ regime for paddocks. Sequestration ceases.

Opportunities in the Carbon Farming Initiative will be revealed at the Carbon Farming Conference & Expo, 28-29 September, 2011
