Agriculture: Gold Standard Tillage Methodology Approved

The Gold Standard “Low Tillage Methodology” is a globally applicable methodology under Gold Standard Agriculture that addresses the most potent greenhouse gas (GHG) sink in the agricultural sector.

With this methodology it is possible to account for GHG emissions from agriculture by changing soil tillage practices within agricultural systems. Activities can prevent emissions from the soil as well as sequestration of carbon in the soil, both of which result in increased soil organic carbon (SOC) content.
