“By my calculations when you increase the soil organic carbon content by 1 percent you’re increasing that soil’s ability to hold plant available water by anywhere from 2,500 gallons per acre to 12,000 gallons per acre. Think of the resilience that you can build into your food production system by increasing the soil available carbon."
