Lightbulb Why a Wetland might Not be Wet

"Wetlands store 35% of carbon in only 9% of the earth’s surface"

https://theconversation.com/why-a-we...-be-wet-103687

Reminds me of one of the best bird sightings I have ever seen - a Brolga that pulled up once in 10 years in a little flooded ephemeral wetland the size of your lounge room, maybe a foot or so deep after record rains ..... hundreds of km's from recognized wetlands, though the old people tell me there were many in the area during suitable seasons /events, before draining, drying, and over grazing became common place.

Thumbs up 'Whole of Landscape' approach with Peter Andrews at Tarwyn Park in Bylong Valley

https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=JLd1fjrMZVI

Ray Martin visits Tarwyn Park in Bylong Valley with a diverse group of farmers, engineers, scientists and academics to meet with Peter Andrews OAM. They have come together to consider how to best present Natural Sequence Farming and the Whole of Landscape approach to mainstream Australia. Find out more at The Australian Landscape Science Institute http://www.tals.org.au/

Thumbs up WINONA - Pasture Cropping The Way To Health - Regenerative Agriculture Case Study

Colin Seis - founder of "Pasture Cropping"

https://www.soilsforlife.org.au/case...Pdrz3s1WZWn-VA

"By applying regenerative forms of cropping and grazing, Colin has achieved a 203% increase in soil carbon in just ten years. The vast majority of the soil carbon is highly stable (non-labile), meaning it is significantly less subject to degradation, and carbon is being built and measured to a depth of 500mm.

Extensive soil testing on*Winona*has shown that eliminating all cultivation other than the direct drilling for pasture cropping, together with rotational grazing, has enabled dramatic improvements in soil condition. Soil carbon has increased by 203% to 90 tonnes a hectare over a ten-year period. This equates to storage of around 170 tonnes of CO2*(equivalent) a hectare.

Seventy-eight per cent of newly sequestered carbon is in the humic fraction of the soil [1]. This is non-labile, therefore much more stable and significantly less subject to degradation."

Question Can Soil Microbes Slow Climate Change?

https://www.scientificamerican.com/a...Bcbm8vOC210wH4

Big results reported - but not even using best practice - no till, no kill pasture cropping, multi species managed rotational grazing, natural sequence farming principles etc.

Studies like this need to be measured not only over different environmental locations and regions, but also seasons, years, and climates too.

Lightbulb Increase water holding capacity of soil to have more water available during drought

Fantastic article on restoring the landscape.
https://m.facebook.com/story.php?sto...cus_composer=0

"Natural Sequence Farming, put simply the model restores a landscape’s natural functioning: floodplains, waterways and wetlands are restored, which “bank” water in the landscape, helping it flourish even in drought."

"Compared to many farms that suffer severe run-off, erosion and nutrient loss, the institute has monitored rainfall infiltration on the 590ha and found an infiltration rate of up to 1 metre per hour on sections of the property.

That number is extraordinary. Given the regenerative work of Tony and Peter (Andrews), this land is like a sponge, sucking in and holding the water, which then improves the biological activity and carbon matter.

“If you can increase the water holding capacity of the soil, you are going to have more water available during drought times."

“This 100ha slice of floodplain, for example, could hold 3000 megalitres. That is banked water which will keep an agricultural enterprise alive during drought. That’s why you see grass on the floodplains here.”

The institute is also monitoring the microclimate of the valley. One hypothesis is that rehydration of the land creates a microclimate that — in this valley — increases rainfall by at least 100mm per year.

The 53-year-old then goes on to a complex explanation which, put simply, means the more water in the soil, the greener the grass, the more evaporation is created, the cooler the climate becomes, which creates dew, mist and rain."

Natural Sequence Farming at Spring Creek

A good look at the erosion damage caused by inappropriate land management (or lack of - basically the exploitation of the environment since invasion, and what is effectively mining of the natural asset wealth). Lush swampy meadows have been turned into moonscapes with deeply eroded gullies that have no hope of breaching banks and recharging floodplains. Countless tonnes of fertile soil have been gouged from the landscape - drying it in the process.

It also looks at some scientific monitoring of remediation works by Peter Andrews along the lines of Natural Sequence Farming techniques. Well worth a watch to see the contrast.

Thumbs up How Indigenous thinking can save the world

" .... the IPCC report itself makes frequent references to the importance of Indigenous knowledge. It says the following, for example: "Agricultural practices that include indigenous and local knowledge can contribute to overcoming the combined challenges of climate change, food security, biodiversity conservation, and combating desertification and land degradation."
