Executive Summary/ Abstract

Grassland soils have the potential to store significant amounts of SOC. Adaptive Multi-paddock grazing (AMP) can potentially enhance capacity of CO2 storage and pasture productivity compared to its Conventional Grazing (CG) counterparts. This study investigates the difference between SOC and N accumulation potential with side-by-side farms with two grazing management systems.
