dc.description.abstract <p>Carbon sequestration is an issue worth exploring for its potential impacts on, and benefits for, agriculture and climate change. Agriculture, can be part of a potential solution to the problem of global warming. When soil conservation and plant residue management are implemented, the concept of carbon sequestration is highly linked to soil management practices, soil conservation practices, and crop rotation. The benefits of soil carbon sequestration as a result of soil conservation practices to the soil system are enormous, such as the improvement of soil aggregate stability, water holding capacity, nutrient availability, microbial activities, etc. The need for evaluating different tillage and crop rotation systems is essential for understanding soil potential for carbon sequestration. The objectives of this research are to evaluate the effects of different crop rotations, tillage practices, and residue qualities on soil carbon sequestration.</p>
