First methane-free carbon-negative wet paddy rice trial successfully concluded

The first possibly methane-free carbon-negative wet paddy rice field has just been harvested,  and it was a bumper crop. No fertilisers were used as the inoculate is capable of supplying sufficient NPK for many crops, dramatically reducing fertiliser costs for farmers. The inoculate is high in potassium, makes soil phosphate more readily available, and fixes atmospheric nitrogen into anaerobic soil and carbon into aerobic soil.

 

At two months the field certainly looked lush and green.

 

The lush green colour indicates the plants are getting sufficient atmospheric nitrogen via the inoculate in the anaerobic soil.

Not only did the inoculate stop methane emissions and replace expensive fertilisers, it also produced a bumper harvest.
