Civil Eats reported on a study by Northeastern University and The Organic Center to be published next month in Advances in Agronomy, which showed that soils from organic farms had 26% more potential for long-term carbon storage than soils from conventional farms, along with 13% more soil organic matter. The results were based on 659 organic soil samples collected by citizen-scientist farmers from 39 states. These results were contrasted with samples from more than 700 conventional farms in 48 states, which the researchers found contained little to no humic substances, a major component of healthy soil.
