March 2021 Research Review
Although consensus exists on the importance of protecting and restoring agricultural soils to minimize soil erosion, rebuild fertility, improve rural livelihoods, and provide climate-secure food production, there is a strong disagreement among soil scientists about the soil's capacity to sequester meaningful amounts of carbon from the atmosphere. This research review explores this disagreement while providing a vision for moving forward.
AGCI has become an intellectual proving ground, a ferment for new ideas and concepts, and a place where the different disciplines actually talk, and progress. Hal Harvey
What We Do
AGCI has been the most prominent place for developing interdisciplinary and transdisciplinary dialogues between scientists and practitioners.Guy Brasseur
