Abstract
High concentrations of greenhouse gasses (CO2, CH4, N2O, water favor, ozone, perfluorocarbons) in the atmosphere trigger climate change ( IPCC, 2021) and subsequently impact agriculture and other aspects of life ( Mikhaylov et al., 2020). Reducing greenhouse gasses (GHG) emissions and sequestering CO2 are strategies to mitigate climate change impact. Vegetations, including crops, can sequester CO2 from the atmosphere and store carbon in their biomass during photosynthesis; better crop growth, higher biomass, and higher CO2 can be absorbed ( Wang et al., 2021). Burning crop residues will release carbon into the atmosphere, whereas incorporating them into the soil will increase soil organic carbon (SOC) content. Thus, zero burning and soil organic matter management are among the approach to increase soil carbon stock and decrease CO2 emission. Data on soil carbon stock are crucial to assess carbon sequestration and storage. Soils store carbon in the long term. This soil function is essential in the terrestrial ecosystem because soil accumulates more carbon than carbon in biomass or the atmosphere. Stored carbon in the soils also prevents GHG emissions ( Bossio et al., 2020). Good land management could ascertain that SOC does not emit into the atmosphere. Meanwhile, good crop management could ensure plants sequester CO2 to biomass by photosynthesis. Good plant residue management could ensure the crop residue is back on land and become soil organic material.
