- ... Agriculture can be either a source or sink of atmospheric CO2 depending on soil management. The application of swine slurry in conventional tilled soils could enhance soil CO2 emission depleting soil organic C stocks. However, the use of recalcitrant C-rich organic fertilizers in no-till soils can offset soil CO2 emission promoting soil C sequestration. This hypothesis was tested by evaluating sho ...
