Soil and grassland management 
Useful resources 
 

Increasing in soil carbon using different management activities in grazing or cropping land (including woody horticulture), Clean Energy Regulator

 

Methodology to claim earn Australian carbon credit units (ACCUs) for emissions reductions that can be sold to generate income to the government tor in the secondary market, legislation, tools & resources 

e.g. applying nutrients to the land, applying lime to remediate acid soils, applying gypsum to remediate sodic or magnesic soils, undertaking irrigation activities from new irrigation efficiency savings, re-establishing or rejuvenating a pasture by seeding establishing, permanently maintaining, a pasture where there was previously no pasture, altering the stocking rate, duration or intensity of grazing, retaining stubble after a crop is harvested, converting from intensive tillage practices to reduced or no tillage practices, modifying the landscape or landform features to remediate land or using mechanical methods to add or redistribute soil.

Storing carbon on grazing land by introducing activities that either increase inputs of carbon to the soil, reduce losses of carbon from the soil or both, Clean Energy Regulator

 

Methodology to claim earn Australian carbon credit units (ACCUs) for emissions reductions that can be sold to generate income to the government tor in the secondary market, legislation, tools & resources 

e.g. converting cropland to permanent pasture, rejuvenating pastures, or changing grazing patterns.

Removing carbon from the atmosphere by increasing the amount of carbon added to the soil, Clean Energy Regulator

Methodology to claim earn Australian carbon credit units (ACCUs) for emissions reductions that can be sold to generate income to the government tor in the secondary market, legislation, tools & resources 

e.g. sustainable intensification, stubble retention or the conversion to pasture (where cropped land is changed to permanent pasture). 

Support / Training

 

Regenerative Australian Farmers 

Regenerative Australian Farmers (RAF) is a leading facilitator and service provider for integrated agricultural solutions to build and monetise soil organic carbon, soil health and rural prosperity. This includes cost effective soil carbon evaluations, soil carbon field coring, baselining expertise & targeted implementation plans to support long term soil carbon contracts. RAF is a member of the Australian Government’s soil carbon methodology working group to further develop and refine measurement and reporting techniques and is linked to a global leader in remote sensing (satellite) of ground data including soil carbon.
