Northeastern University and The Organic Center have released a breakthrough study showing that organic cuts agriculture’s contribution to climate change! Results from this project show that organic soils have significantly higher levels of humic substances. This means that not only is organic better at sequestering carbon, but it is effectively locking away carbon in long-term reserves that would otherwise be in the atmosphere. Read our full press release about the findings and the study abstract, and be sure to watch and share the new “Cool Science for a Cool Planet” video that explains the findings. he full paper will be in the October 1 peer-reviewed scientific publication, Advances in Agronomy.
