ABSTRACT
The article discusses issues on the development of the National Carbon Offset Standard (NCOS) amended by Australia's federal government. It reports that the NCOS is created for farm businesses to formulate carbon offset credits through high contents of carbon in soil which is vital in the reduction of greenhouse gases from industrial companies. It highlights on the issue of carbon trade for farmers and the arising problem concerning soil carbon modeling.
