Free Soil Carbon Baseline Testing
Carbon Sync, in association with FarmLab and The University of Queensland (UQ), is offering FREE soil carbon baseline testing to Western Australian farmers, valued between $5000 and $7000.
This project is part of the Federal Government’s National Soil Carbon Innovation Challenge (NSCIC). The NSCIC aims to develop technologies that will lower the costs of accurately baselining a farm’s soil carbon. The project will take soil samples from 400 farms across Australia to build up the data and knowledge to support these aims.
Along with FarmLab and UQ, we are enthusiastic to invite you to be part of helping to advance technology that helps farmers meet the ongoing challenges of climate change.
What’s in it for farmers?
The Project Team members will take soil samples at 18 locations to both a 0-30cm and 30-60 cm depth. These 36 samples will be lab-tested for Soil Organic Carbon (SOC).
The Project covers the costs of sampling and lab testing (usually $5,000-$7,000).
You’ll receive test results via a 30-day complimentary subscription to the FarmLab software.
