Carbon Positive - Regenerating soil carbon in soils used for intensive field cropping
Our Trust/LandWISE project – Carbon Positive – will compare commercial conventional vs alternative/regenerative farming systems applicable to Hawke’s Bay’s horticulture, viticulture, and cropping and sectors, with special focus on soil carbon, input use, nutrient loss, irrigation and water retention.
Soil sampling/monitoring and practice change will first be implemented on the LandWISE experimental ‘micro-farm. The six-year project is budgeted at $3m, with $2m of that expected from MPI. Other participants include Watties, McCain's, Ballance, HBRC.
