FAO Technical Manual on Recarbonizing Global Soils
This technical manual gathers existing data on the impacts of the soil management practices on soil organic carbon content in a wide array of environments, including the advantages, drawbacks and constraints. Information is supported by case studies documenting the effects of soil management on SOC stocks and successful experiences of SOC sequestration in practical field applications.
The link between macro, secondary, and micronutrient fertilizer application and soil carbon sequestration is the subject of the Chapter 14 co-authored by APNI titled “Mineral fertilization (macro, secondary and micronutrients)” within Volume 3 of the manual.
The entire manual includes:
Volume 1 – Introduction and methodology.
Volume 2 – Hot spots and bright spots of soil organic carbon.
Volume 3 – Cropland, grassland, integrated systems and farming approaches – Practices overview
Volume 4 – Cropland, grassland, integrated systems and farming approaches – Case studies.
Volume 5 – Forestry, wetlands, urban soils – Practices overview.
Volume 6 – Forestry, wetlands, and urban soils – Case studies.
