This webinar will discuss findings into the links between grazing management and soil organic carbon.
An extensive Australian review of published research has found that grazing management is unlikely to be a silver bullet for increasing soil organic carbon, and that the other benefits of improved grazing management (such as increased ground cover and improved productivity) may outweigh potential soil carbon gains. However, results were very much site-specific, with some cases showing large gains in soil carbon, while others showed large losses.
The research presented is part of Meat & Livestock Australia’s Carbon Storage Partnership, which seeks to explore and develop pathways to carbon-neutral red meat production by 2030.
Audience questions welcome via the Zoom Q&A function.
