One of the most rewarding aspects of this project has been engaging with farmers and witnessing their curiosity about the impact of carbon on their land. With soil sampling costs covered by FarmLab, we’ve been able to provide farmers with a gateway to better understand the benefits of good soil health, and increased carbon, particularly in terms of water retention and overall landscape function.
FarmLab leads largest ever national soil sampling project to build vital blueprint for Australian agriculture
As part of the Federal Government’s National Soil Carbon Innovation Challenge, the University of Queensland, together with FarmLab, Ziltek, AgriCircle, and the University of Aberdeen are leading critical research to enhance Australia’s soil carbon accounting capabilities to achieve its emissions reduction goals, in line with the Paris Agreement. The $4.3 million two-year research project is
For larger clients running carbon and environmental measurement projects across multiple properties, we have introduced a new ‘Data Services’ model to address challenges faced in coordinating samplers, sample plans, and lab tests across many projects, resulting in a lack of transparency and data gaps.
