The collaboration was established over a five year period in which the farmers apply Carbon Farming techniques that are scientifically backed with data. The techniques used are equivalent to at least 15 tons of stored CO2 per farmer per year.
Keller/DKG are delighted to announce the initiative is working extremely well and the CO2 is binding into the soil better than expected. In addition, there are further benefits which include – biodiversity, which is increasing, and agriculture is also proving to be more resilient to climate extremes. Averages over the next four years are expected to reach CO2 sequestration to a level of 292.4 tCO2/ha. This will allow nature to do the rest.
