Biomass Connect Webinar 3
Biomass Crops - Some Interesting Alternatives. Some biomass crops are bigger and leave a greater impression than others whilst others might be humbler but still get the job done. Our panel includes environmental farmer John Hawkins and expert silviculturalist Bryan Elliott.
Soil Organic Carbon
This video explores the effect of planting biomass crops on Soil Organic Carbon (SOC). It is formed from the interaction of ecosystem processes such as photosynthesis, respiration and decomposition of SOM. Soil carbon provides the benefit of enhancing soil quality which is essential to sustain and improve food production, increase supply and quality of water, enhance biodiversity, and reduce atmospheric CO2. For these reasons, planting biomass crops help to improve soil quality, provide resilience to physical soil degradation and help mitigate climate change.
