The United States Agency for International Development (USAID)-funded Sustainable Agriculture and Natural Resources Management (SANREM) Collaborative Research Support Program (CRSP) seeks to determine the effects of conservation agriculture (CA) on soil fertility and carbon (C) sequestration in the developing world. Time 0 and Year 3 soil samples at 0 – 5 and 5 – 10 cm depths will be compared to determine the effects of CA on soil fertility and soil C. (Author's abstract).
