How AI and deeper roots can help soil store more carbon -

A recent article published in Molecular Plant titled "Going deep: Roots, carbon, and analyzing subsoil carbon dynamics" highlights the importance of improving soil carbon for farmers to increase food production, achieve global net-zero carbon emissions, and address climate change impacts. Lead author Angela Fernando, along with her collaborators, aims to provide a comprehensive summary of methods and ideas in one place for experts in the field. The article emphasizes the benefits of deeper roots, which can serve as reservoirs for nutrients and water, as well as contribute to carbon sequestration. The discovery of the DRO1 gene enables the development of crop varieties with deeper roots that can trap soil carbon.

Measuring soil carbon remains a challenge, but advancements in remote sensing and AI analysis offer potential solutions for accurate and large-scale measurement. Improved measurement techniques could facilitate participation in carbon markets and the development of methodologies that benefit farmers. Future advancements in gene editing technologies, such as CRISPR, hold promise for creating crop varieties suited for efficient resource capture and carbon sequestration.
