COVER STORY

Farming and the carbon economy

Use irrigation to supercharge the farm’s ability to capture carbon.

“Carbon capture” is a phrase on everybody’s lips these days. Engineers dream of building high-tech facilities to grab carbon dioxide from the air, concentrate it and pump it deep into the earth. Others look to low-oxygen burning systems, called pyrolysis, to create biochar that can be used as a fertilizer or buried. Foresters count trees, while ecologists in Europe look to peat bogs for a massive carbon sink.
