The Project team was Peter Bruce-Iri and Catherine Murupaenga-Ikenn (NorthTec), Dr Mere Kepa, Dr Benjamin Pittman, Marcus Williams (Unitec) and Graham Shepherd (BioAgrinomics).

Soil Carbon Sequestration: A Contested Space in Science

Soil carbon contested spaceThis discussion paper explores how science and other stakeholder interests inhibit the development of soil carbon sequestration as a mitigation tool for New Zealand. Stakeholders groups who influence this are farmers, the agribusiness ecosystem, science and innovation, policy makers and the community (including customers). Ideally New Zealand will learn from regenerative farmers and learn to embrace their methods.
