Sequestering carbon in soils in grazing systemsMore Details Fact Sheet
A project using this method stores carbon in soils on grazing land by introducing activities that increase inputs of carbon to the soil, reduce loss of carbon from the soil, or both.
The land on which a project occurs must have been under permanent pasture or continuously cropped for at least five years before applying to conduct the project or before conducting a baseline sampling round.
The land can be managed using a range of activities to build soil carbon including, but not limited to:converting cropland to permanent pasture
rejuvenating pastures, or
changing grazing patterns.
Reducing greenhouse gas emissions from fertiliser in irrigated cottonMore Details Fact Sheet
The method is based on increasing the efficiency of nitrogen fertiliser use, measured as the ratio of cotton lint yield to nitrogen applied via synthetic fertiliser. An increase in nitrogen fertiliser use efficiency is equivalent to a decrease in emissions intensity from synthetic fertiliser use.Management actions taken under the method can maintain lint yield while reducing fertiliser use, or improve lint yield without a proportional increase in fertiliser use.
This method supports a broad range of management actions, including changes in the rate, timing, method and type of nitrogen fertiliser application. At least one new management action to improve nitrogen fertiliser use efficiency must be undertaken in the project area, and participants have the flexibility to select management actions that suit their individual circumstances.
The method applies only to cotton crops grown under irrigation, where the emissions of nitrous oxide can be directly related to the rate of fertiliser nitrogen used on the crop. The method only covers the use of synthetic fertiliser.
Estimating sequestration of carbon in soil using default values method (model-based soil carbon)More Details Fact Sheet
A project using this method stores carbon in soils on agricultural land by introducing specific management actions that increase inputs of carbon to the soil, reduce loss of carbon from the soil, or both.
A model-based soil carbon project must carry out at least one of the following specific management actions:permanently converting land from annual cropping to pasture
retaining crop residue that was previously removed through burning or baling in field, or
increasing biomass yields (sustainable intensification) through inputs such as fertiliser, lime and water.
