This episode highlights calcium carbonate, which you might recognize as caliche, as a form of inorganic carbon. Calcium carbonate represents the world's largest terrestrial carbon sink, and cautions growers, policy makers, and carbon credit brokers to monitor carbon dynamics closely when capturing carbon through agriculture.
The episode is supported by JAL Farms through Western SARE project FW22-399. Project details can be found on the Western SARE website.
