Building Carbon Capacity in the Limestone Coast

The Building Carbon Capacity project was designed to increase farmers' ability to store carbon across the Limestone Coast by improving their awareness of farm management practices that enhance the cycling of carbon in plants and soils. The project assessed the health and function of different agricultural soils comparing their condition where possible against those found in remnant native vegetation. Five paired locations were selected across the Limestone Coast to provide a range of production systems, soil types and rainfall gradients across the region.
