Carbon gains and losses with irrigation, runoff and drainage in cotton farming systems

Nachimuthu, Guna; Hulugalle, Nilantha; Watkins, Mark D; Weaver, John; Finlay, L.A.; McCorkell, Bruce


Theoretical estimates of soil carbon sequestration in Australian farming systems often do not coincide with measured values of soil carbon, possibly due to post sequestration carbon losses (Hulugalle et al. 2013b; Nachimuthu and Hulugalle 2016). Most authors have assumed that this was associated with microbial respiration (Huon et al. 2013). However, although largely overlooked in the past, part of this decline is thought to be due to carbon losses through soil erosion (Chappell et al. 2015;...[Show more]
