Mother Nature sequesters carbon most efficiently.
Plants photosynthesize carbon dioxide into organic carbon, 20% of which is passed through their roots to mycorrhizal fungi in the soil. The fungi, in turn, sequester the organic carbon permanently within recalcitrant glycoproteins that are stable in the soil – even after decades of tillage.
In fact, 60% of all plant-derived soil organic carbon is attributed to mycorrhizal carbon.
