Importance of carbon sequestration and conservation Agriculture in hilly region
Agriculture acts as both the sink and sources of the greenhouse gases .Conservation agriculture play significant role in soil organic carbon sequestration by increasing soil carbon sinks, reducing GHG emission , and contributing biomass feed stocks for energy use .Adoption of Conservation Agriculture with use of crop residues , mulch and no till farming helps to conserve moisture reduces soil erosion and enhances soil Organic consentration .Sequestering the carbon in the soil plant system through site specific management practice may help to mitigate impact of climate change.
