Carbon Connects

Main research questionPeat soils contain large carbon stocks. Drainage of soils for agricultural use causes large CO2-emissions. The conservation of carbon in peat soils is important for climate change mitigation.

Climate neutral enterprises through carbon storage in agroforestry

The concrete question is how much C-storage can be realized through agroforestry, what the drawbacks are, and the pratical arrangements required for the marketing.Research approachThe potential C sequestration of East-Flemish farms will be estimated through literature study, field measurements and simulations using CARAT (CARbon Agroforestry Tool).

ILVO and Agriculture and Fisheries Policy Area create a roadmap and geodata platform for carbon farming in Flanders

ILVO and Agriculture and Fisheries Policy Area create a roadmap and geodata platform for carbon farming in Flanders

In the recently started LIFE CarbonCounts project, ILVO and the policy Department of Agriculture and Fisheries will investigate how carbon farming can be implemented more broadly in a feasible, fair and efficient manner, and work on a geodata platform for the further development of carbon farming.
