Grasslands more Resilient to Climate Change

Bookmark and Share

A new study by Dr Franciska de Vries of Lancaster University shows that soils in grasslands have more fungi than the bacteria-heavy cropfields and therefore retain their carbon in drought. This study demonstrates the importance of perennial grasses and healthy grasslands for a resilient landscape as weather may become more extreme with climate change. At HMI we believe planned grazing will improve grassland health and lead to those fungal dominated soils that will store carbon and mitigate climate change. Read more here.
