BIOCHAR
This farmer user a pyrolysis kiln oven or bio-refinery to lock up carbon and provide nutrient for his soil.
GEO-ENGINEER
Alongside a thriving food production business, this farmer also specialises in carbon sequestration. He uses a combination of techniques to capture and bury carbon and provide expertise and consultancy to other farmers.
LAND USE
Some things aren't so different in 2030. Good soils mean good crops. Advanced land and soil management via intercropping, cover cropping, composting and the application of biochar help with burying carbon.
MIXED FOREST
Land use management, soil management and the use of agro-forestry are vital to sequestering carbon. The farmer receives financial rewards for meeting environmental targets and providing advice to others.

Alongside a thriving food production business, this farmer also specialises in carbon sequestration.
