ABSTRACT
The article mentions the scientists from Agricultural Research Service (ARS) and outside collaborators, setting up a national network for soil carbon research projects called GRACEnet (Greenhouse-Gas Reduction through Agricultural Carbon Enhancement Network). It mentions coordination on all research projects of soil carbon sequestration on farm and range lands, developing new management practices in reducing greenhouse gas emissions, preventing soil erosion and increasing soil carbon levels.

    Sequestering carbon (C) in soil organic matter in grassland systems is often cited as a major opportunity to offset greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. However, these systems are typically grazed by ruminants, leading to uncertainties in the net GHG balance that may be achieved. We used a pasture...
