Extracting excess carbon in our atmosphere and locking it into the soil could improve health according to a new 5-year, 15 million dollar project at the Ohio State University.
Subsidizing for the task comes from a $5 million award from the Washington, D.C.- based Foundation for Food and Agriculture Research and about $10 million in matching commitments from Ohio State, ware gatherings, industry, and different contributors. The task will quantify how much natural and inorganic carbon gets sequestered in the dirt under various cultivating rehearses in key locales across the western hemisphere.
Let’s hope that this funding pays off and that we are able to put excess carbon in the soil to stop climate change!
