Greater soil carbon stocks and faster turnover rates with increasing agricultural productivity

Sanderman, Jon; Creamer, Courtney; Baisden, W. Troy; Farrell, Mark; Fallon, Stewart


Devising agricultural management schemes that enhance food security and soil carbon levels is a high priority for many nations. However, the coupling between agricultural productivity, soil carbon stocks and organic matter turnover rates is still unclear. Archived soil samples from four decades of a long-term crop rotation trial were analyzed for soil organic matter (SOM) cycling-relevant properties: C and N content, bulk composition by nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) spectroscopy, amino sugar...[Show more]
