Effect of planting biomass crops on soil carbon

  • Biomass crops accumulate relatively large quantities of below and above ground biomass which is made of carbon sequestered from the atmosphere.
  • The frequent harvest of above ground biomass enhances vigorous shoot regeneration and root turnover, which enhances soil carbon stock.
  • Biomass crops after establishment, require no tillage during the lifetime of the plant, which enhances soil carbon stock by minimising disturbance to the soil.
