In the call “Carbon storage as a climate measure in agriculture” from Formas, six projects received funding to increase knowledge about carbon storage in Swedish agricultural and to support Swedish food production.
Two of the projects are led by BECC PI:s Jonas Ardö and Johannes Rousk. Jonas's project will study how to capture and sequester carbon dioxide in perennial cultivation systems. Johannes’s will focus on the implications of perennial crops for deep carbon storage in agricultural soils.
Jonas Ardö is a teacher and professor at the Department of Physical Geography and Ecosystem Science.
