Historic agricultural management has depleted the SOC stocks and exerted significant pressure on agricultural soils' capacity to store and cycle C.

Under best management practices, soils may have great potential to act as C sinks and to assist in climate change mitigation.

Simulation models of crops can provide robust and objective methods to extrapolate likely C changes arising from management and climate change.
