Australia’s first project to accurately measure soil carbon at scale has seen two Queensland beef enterprises issued with a combined 151,312 Australian Carbon Credit Units.
The credits were issued by the Clean Energy Regulator and are being viewed as an unprecedented demonstration of the impact active land and livestock management can have on removing carbon from the atmosphere and mitigating greenhouse gas emissions.
Tom and Antoinette Archer’s property near Goondiwindi together with Andrew and Meagan Lawrie’s property near Gogango are the recipients of the credit units.
CarbonLink head Dr Terry McCosker said the study reported sequestration rates more than three times the conservative original estimates and proved livestock could be positive contributors to carbon storage and ecological health. See here for more.
