Soil as a carbon storehouse

This article from Yale Environment 360 discusses the impacts that land restoration could have on reducing the amount of carbon released into the atmosphere.

Improving soil quality through practices such as agroforestry and cover crops can not only be environmentally beneficial through the sequestration of carbon but also through the reductions in erosion and runoff.
