China’s "carbon peak" is expected to be achieved around 2030, and China's carbon neutrality task is actually very arduous. Whether it is forest carbon sequestration or soil carbon sequestration, it may be necessary to obtain the corresponding "ownership" of farmers, which is also the value brought by farmers planting crops or contracting land. In the future, planting crops or contracting land may bring additional income, which is also a favorable way to achieve common prosperity.


The group standard for "Technical Specification for agricultural soil carbon sequestration Part 1 One planting period" (T/CGDF 00035-2022), developed by the Standard Working Committee of the China Biodiversity Conservation and Green Development Foundation (CBCGDF) and relevant units, was released in December 2022 and is currently in the stage of project-based experimental verification. It aims to provide more valuable reference for soil carbon sequestration, so as to improve the quality of cultivated land, mitigate climate change and help achieve carbon neutrality.


During the verification stage, the project team will use organic fertilizers and other methods to select, measure and verify with the goal of increasing crop yields, promoting carbon sequestration, reducing the use of chemical fertilizers, and providing more value to the farmland ecosystem. Soil carbon sequestration should not only focus on the value it brings to farmland, but also pay attention to the overall value and benefits brought by carbon sequestration itself to the economy, ecology and other aspects.
