  1. Congratulations to Anna Kolganova for her Honorable Mention at the Hayes Advanced Research Forum! PhD students Anna Kolganova and Brittany Multer from the Lal Carbon Center joined dozens of their peers at the Ohio State University Union on Friday, March 1st for the 38th Edward F. Hayes Advanced


  1. When compared to virgin land (forest and grassland), croplands store significantly lower amounts of organic carbon (OC), mainly as a result of soil tillage, and de- creased plant inputs to the soil over the whole year.

  2. Recently, Chaplot and Smith (2023) challenged the notion, that cover crops constitute an effective option to increase soil organic carbon (SOC) stocks. As much as we agree with the authors' position on the need for analytical rigour, we strongly question the validity of their study.


  1. We affirm that agriculture and food systems must urgently adapt and transform in order to respond to the imperatives of climate change.


  1. Explore some valuable information about what kind of questions that farmers might have about agricultural carbon markets from the Farmland Information Center: The agricultural carbon markets are changing rapidly.


  1. Earthworms are critical soil ecosystem engineers that support plant growth in numerous ways; however, their contribution to global agricultural production has not been quantified.
