Improving soil could keep world within 1.5C heating target, research suggests
We are thrilled to share insights from our Chief Scientist, Jacqueline McGlade in her recent interview with The Guardian, where she highlights the immense potential of better farming techniques in helping us meet the 1.5C target.
At Downforce Technologies, we have calculated that implementing better farming techniques (for e.g. crop rotation, planting cover crops, or using direct drilling) could result in a staggering storage of 31 gigatonnes of carbon dioxide annually, bringing us closer to bridging the 32 gigatonnes gap required to meet the crucial 1.5°C target.
We are committed to revolutionising agricultural practices & empowering farmers to harness the power of healthy soils. We help supply chains reach their net zero goals by working to improve soil health and carbon sequestration at scale.
