Abstract

The objective of this study was to quantify the soil organic carbon (SOC) stocks of Iowa State University’s (ISU) farmland. Soil organic carbon is a worthwhile property to measure because its quantification may allow ISU to more fully realize its environmental impact and to target conservation measures toland parcels with the lowest carbon content.The carbon content of ISU’s land also could be useful economically if a carbon credit system was implemented.
