Soil Carbon in New Mexico Rangelands


In this presentation, Dr. Joel Brown discusses a basic understanding of the rangeland carbon cycle, net primary productivity, and drivers of carbon storage. This talk also covers processes and principles of carbon sequestration in rangelands and provides information on management systems to increase carbon storage. It also highlights how models help estimate and document carbon storage at scales.

Carbon Farming in Agroecosystems

This presentation discusses carbon management issues in New Mexico croplands, basic processes involved in cropland carbon sequestration, and management strategies for improving soil carbon storage. Dr. Rajan Ghimire also shared results from ongoing work at ASC Clovis and outlined further work needed to enhance carbon sequestration. He emphasized ways to manage carbon and water together for greater benefits.
