How Does It Work?
Carbon sequestration is a natural process in which plants act as a carbon pump, removing carbon (CO2) from the atmosphere and storing it in the soil. The adoption of regenerative farming practices, & sequestration of carbon, enables farmers to cultivate soils characterized by increased resilience, superior water retention, increased microbial activity and a more stable environment conducive to optimal plant growth.
Westman Soil Sampling is striving to develop statistically credible methods for measuring carbon sequestered in the soil. It is our belief that If there is going to be a price on carbon emissions, then the farmers who are sequestering carbon should be getting compensated. It is our mission to provide farms with statistically credible evidence to show how much carbon they have removed from the atmosphere and stored in their soil.
