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.

Thumbs up The Mulloon Institute Landscape Regeneration

Regenerating the Australian Landscape:
A nice short little video clip explaining some of the natural sequence farming principles, and how we got to here - damaged in such a short period by not following that.
