Quick Carbon: A primer on Yale's Field Tool to Measure Carbon
Tuesday, December 11
10AM PST // 11AM MST // 12PM CST // 1PM EST
December's ROOTED session will introduce a new tool for measuring carbon soil sequestration impacts, developed by Yale University.
Yale's Quick Carbon program is gaining ground as a protocol and tool that farmers can use in the field to help generate soil carbon data. Charlie Bettigole, a researcher on the program, will join us to review how producers can use their tool to analyze and understand carbon levels in their soil.
This tool is still under development but has seen quick uptake. It's proving to be a great tool to get producers' attention and buy-in on carbon sequestration practices. Aside from farmers, this tool can be used by brands looking to work deeper with their supply chain and help make the business case for carbon farming practices. ROOTED members will also have an opportunity to work with Yale in 2019 during the next phases of development and scaling -- and receive a baseline reading on key producers' soils in addition to being key stakeholders for this exciting development.
