There is no greener industry than agriculture, right? While this claim may seem intuitive, current data reveals that land use related to agriculture contributes to as much as 10% of global CO2 emissions. With the escalating global climate crisis, the need to reduce agricultural emissions has become more pressing than ever.

But what if instead of drastically limiting emissions, we could just use the natural process of photosynthesis to address the challenge and actively remove CO2 from the atmosphere? Plants inherently capture carbon dioxide through photosynthesis, and the carbon they trap can be transformed into soil organic carbon - a phenomenon known as carbon sequestration.
