Organic systems, by closing nutrient cycles and making more efficient use of local (on-farm) resources, can contribute to mitigating climate change1. This is due to the fact that certain farming practices result in storage of carbon (C) in the soil (sequestration), thereby effectively reducing the amount of CO2 in the atmosphere. The DOK trial, a research project on the mitigation potential of Organic Agriculture has demonstrated this.
