It’s our opinion that when we till soil, don’t use diverse pastures, use synthetic fertilisers, pesticides & herbicides we decrease microbiological activity (fungi & bacteria etc) in the soil and as result we decrease soil carbon.
Soil is the correct place to store carbon. Symbiosis is all about carbon sequestration.
Carbon in soil is natures cleansing agent. Low soil carbon means poor soil structure, less water and nutrient holding capacity. Heavy rain on low carbon soils equals water, soil & nutrients exiting land and polluting water ways.
So if you increase your soil carbon you increase your water holding capacity and nutrient holding capacity. Sounds worth doing!
