    Hi Alan, You re right, how can carbon savings be calculated? I have stopped calculating because it is like imposing quotas or limits or deadlines. For example

      Hi Alan,

      You're right, how can carbon savings be calculated?
      I have stopped calculating because it is like imposing quotas or limits or
      deadlines. For example I consider it a lack of humility to plant seeds and
      then expect immediate returns from weakened crops trying to survive in the
      unnatural surroundings we put them in. NF requires abandoning conventional
      goals such as having a bumper crop in the first year or making a profit.


      I was having this conversation with loved ones around me who said that my
      natural farming can never feed the world because not everybody has land to
      plant to a few crops, and besides revenue from my cultivation could never
      buy me an internet subscription, etc.. There I was listening to them and
      thinking that the hardest thing to change is a mindset.

      Many times I think of hunter-gatherer tribes that still exist in the world
      today and how they do not have the hoarding habit we have. They take from
      nature what they can eat and eat what they can take. They have no fears of
      Nature ever failing to feed them. Sometimes I wonder why people like us who
      can send men into space cannot feed all the world's inhabitants.

      Have a nice day.
      RUTHIE

        Thank you so much Allan Sloan for expressing the carbon sequestration aspect of Natural Farming.

        I have read somewhere that scientists can actually do the computation.  This link shows a research on the matter:

          Thank you for the positive response according to my idea of carbon trading such as trading commodities trading by calculating the amount of carbon that is dilahan including the exit or harvested by farmers. Trading system is done is through the scheme "warehouse receipt" so that supply and demand through securities and may be traded on a "futures market". But the more details you read the first book Rudi Hilmanto or contacting him directly

          This might be a little explanation thank my opinion

          Im not a specialist lawyer or trader, and the following may be incorrect, but my current understanding is that:

          Technically, or theoretically, if Natural Farmers were able (individually or collectively) to convert large enough areas from tillage to non/tillage, Carbon would be sequestered.

          If that Carbon saving is certified by a recognised body, it is my understanding that trade able credits could be created.

          Unless a large area is involved it is unlikely that any revenue created would exceed the cost of certification. If I am correct (and I'm not at all sure I am) it may be possible to establish a register of established NF systems on a cooperative basis to generate revenue. I am not even sure that it would be possible to calculate the carbon savings on a large number if different plots.

          Alan
