Get to know the mitigation potential of adopting carbon farming practices on your farm and in your region
Browse the high-resolution geographical information system of the C-FARMs project. The keystone of the processing workflow was the definition of homogeneous classes for climate, soil texture and land use, as the basic units to which the information on Soil Organi Carbon (SOC) properties and SOC change carbon farming scenarios is referred to.
Farm Scenarios
Upload your own map of the parcels and assess their current soil carbon stock and its potential change related to the adoption of carbon farming practices. The estimated evolution of the soil carbon stock value is displayed by interactive charts. The interactive map supports the parcels drawing and shows the results as a thematic map.
Regional Scenarios
If you are interested in simulations on a regional scale and know the incidence of the crop classes on the regional territory, formulate hypotheses on the conversion of part of them into carbon farming-type management, thus you will be able to obtain an estimate of the aggregate change values ​​of the stock of carbon over extensive territorial/administrative areas.

C-FARMs – Carbon Farming Simulator is a prototype web application for the simulation of scenarios on the potential for CO2 sequestration and/or emission reductions associated with the adoption of carbon farming practices. It allows analysis both at farm level and at regional level, supporting decision making by public authorities.

The C-FARMs project has generated new and reliable information layers on the initial SOC level of agricultural soils and their associated carbon sequestration potential. The C-FARMs – Carbon Farming Simulator provides two different algorithms of simulation:

  • The “IPCC method” rely on IPCC guidelines (IPCC, 2006) to evaluate the Soil Organic Carbon (SOC) stock change, depending on farming practices changes (simulated by the user) and environmental constants. Simulations with the “IPCC” method are possible over the whole agricultural area of Lombardy region.
  • The “C-FARMs method” makes the most out of the spatial integration of existing and most updated geodatabases (FAO GSOC map, Climatic stratification of the Environment of Europe, Land use and pedological map of the Lombardy Region): it relies on the association of statistically assessed SOC content and potential for SOC sequestration to homogeneous areas (spatial units), deriving from climate, soil type and land use layers stratification, and on a limited set of scenarios of carbon farming practices defined in dedicated actions of the project. Simulations with the “C-FARMs method” are possible over a part of the regional agricultural area (almost 54%).

The design and development of C-FARMs – Carbon Farming Simulator were coordinated and carried out by Terrasystem with the support of FederlegnoArredo, Confagricoltura, CMCC and Università degli Studi della Tuscia di Viterbo.
