Manuscript Topics
Agriculture is integral to the cycles of elements such as carbon. While the reduction of C outputs to the atmosphere due to farming operations has been the subject of numerous studies, an overlooked aspect of agriculture is its potential to mitigate greenhouse gas emissions through carbon storage in the plant-soil system. Several agriculture-based greenhouse gas mitigation activities have been proposed but either their effectiveness or their adoption large scale remain substantial challenges. More research needs to be performed on the capacity of agriculture and the plant-soil system to capture more of the exceeding atmospheric carbon and that will be further translated into effective greenhouse gas policies. Here we compile ‘state of the art’ soil-plant greenhouse gas mitigation practices to inform on their potentials, identify gaps in understanding and suggest ways forward in the fight against climate change.

Contribution could be reviews or standard research papers.
