'Organic Farming Research Foundation': organic for climate research priorities

As legislators continue to consider comprehensive climate legislation, OFRF is working closely with Congress and partner organizations to ensure the voices of organic farmers are heard on Capitol Hill. Organic agriculture has great potential to sequester carbon, mitigate greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions, reduce the environmental impacts of fertilizers and pesticides, and build resilience to a changing climate in our farms, ranches, rural communities, and food systems.

Introduction of Cardoon (Cynara cardunculus L.) in a Rainfed Rotation to Improve Soil Organic Carbon Stock in Marginal Lands

The production of a biomass as a feedstock for biorefinery is gaining attention in many agricultural areas. The adoption of biorefinery crops (i.e., perennial cardoon) can represent an interesting option for farmers and can contribute to increase soil organic carbon stock (SOCS). The study aimed to assess the potential effect on long-term SOCS change by the introduction of cardoon in a Mediterranean marginal area (Sassari, Italy).

EIP-AGRI workshop ‘Towards carbon neutral agriculture’ in June

Under the theme ‘Towards carbon neutral agriculture’, the European Commission and the EIP-AGRI Service Point organise a workshop, taking place on 17-18 June 2020 in Estonia. The objective of the workshop is to bring actors together, to share experiences, and to design farming systems and practices that reduce the carbon foot print of the European agricultural sector.
