Saving the climate from the ground up
Jülich/Bonn, 27. October 2020 – Soil has the capacity to bind large quantities of carbon in the long term. An international team of researchers, including from Forschungszentrum Jülich, is now advocating effective use of this potential. Experts estimate that this could reduce the increase of the greenhouse gas CO2 in the atmosphere by a third. At the same time, agricultural yields in many regions would also increase significantly. In a recent publication they present a strategy to achieve these goals. The study is published in the journal Nature Communications.
