GCS UPDATE: Field research begins on Beetaloo

As part of the filling research gap proposal, GCS is collecting soil data on Beetaloo Station in the Northern Territory.

This field work kicked off in late September and is continuing through to mid November.

The objective of the project is to demonstrate a commercially cost-efficient method to measure rangeland soil organic carbon content and composition utilising remote sensing and in situ ground based spectrometry
for application in Carbon Farming Initiative (CFI) methodologies. This method extends and complements the Soil Carbon Research Program (SCaRP) field and laboratory methods.

The outcome of the project will be a tested measure of rangeland soil organic carbon. This method will be used in a CFI soil carbon methodology for a robust assessment of carbon stocks in rangelands. The project will be undertaken on 100,000 hectares of central Australian rangeland across two properties.

Now, three years later, there are two new ways to get involved that suit a broader spectrum of farming operations.

What are Reef Credits and how are they generated?

Being paid to implement best practice land management and deliver cleaner water to the Reef, without negatively impacting productivity may seem too good to be true. But according to GreenCollar Business Development Manager Bart Dryden, and the numerous farmers already running Reef Credit projects, it really is a win:win transaction that benefits both the farmer and the environment.

The impact of fire on carbon projects

Rain, drought, flood and fire. All elements that impact how a property is run and require constant attention and management. And while good rainfall seasons are always welcome, the corresponding build-up of vegetation flows through to the need to manage fire risk as weather conditions turn.
