(File) Discussion Paper: Carbon Sequestration in Canadian Agriculture
Following engagements with academic specialists and industry leaders, the Office of Senator Colin Deacon has garnered considerable evidence that Canadian agriculture can play a meaningful role in addressing climate change by reducing greenhouse gas emissions through biological carbon sequestration and agricultural innovation. Further benefits include increasing soil health and the resilience of crops to extreme weather events and, consequently, agricultural productivity; increases to farm-gate revenue; and the opportunity to re-establish Canada as a global leader in agriculture exports, agri-tech and agricultural innovation.
