Caption: Switchgrass and maize crop study. Switchgrass (Panicum virgatum, right) and no-till maize (Zea mays, left) being grown in a soil carbon sequestration study that started in 1998. Soil carbon sequestration refers to the process by which atmospheric carbon dioxide is captured by plants and stored in the soil. Studies of the effect of agricultural crops as a carbon sink are carried out to help determine the impact of crops on climate change. Photographed in Nebraska, USA.
