Johannes Lehmann, Deborah A. Bossio, and Dominic Woolf highlight, on The Hill, the role of nitrogen management in reducing emissions.
- Nitrogen can have both positive (increased food production) and negative (increased greenhouse gas emissions) effects on our planet.

“It is very clear that only a joint view of organic carbon and nitrogen management will provide the synergies needed to address both food security and climate change. These goals can only be delivered in an effective way by working from the ground up, starting with those who manage the land and providing the site-specific and dynamic information systems that allow a systems view of soil health management. In our opinion, only a joint platform to address the carbon-nitrogen nexus in soil health management will accomplish that.”
