---- Carbon in the soil is a good thing. It boosts biological activity and nutrients to plants and improves water infiltration and storage.   ---- One tonnne of stored carbon in the soil removes 3.7 tonnes of carbon dioxide from the atmosphere.   ---- Each additional 1% increase in soil carbon per hectare, can result in an additional 168,000 litres of water stored in the soil.   ---- Innovative farmers across the world are using practices that build soil health and are witnessing transformations in productivity and biodiversity.   ---- Carbon is the driver for every aspect of soil health and function. — Australian Soil Scientist Dr Christine Jones
