Research and Development Research and development (R&D) policies can be used to enhance the benefits of a given conservation practice. The objective of research would be either to improve performance or to reduce costs of the conservation practice. R&D is a long-term policy strategy with an uncertain probability of success, but it may also reap the greatest gains in encouraging the voluntary adoption ©2002 CRC Press LLC L1581_c02_fm Page 19 Friday, December 21, 2001 7:52 AM of a preferred technology because it can increase the profitability of the conservation practice for a wider range of potential adopters.

And an increase in the output of C from the soil–plant continuum. The C output from the system is accentuated by deforestation, biomass burning, drainage of wetlands, tillage, and removal of crop residue and biomass. Even if the amount of residues or biomass returned is the same as that under natural ecosystems, the rate of C output from agricultural ecosystems is more because of changes in temperature and moisture regimes. Soils of agricultural ecosystems are drier and warmer than those under natural ecosystems, and thus have high rates of oxidation or mineralization (Jenny, 1981).

The SIC includes elemental C and carbonate minerals of primary and secondary origin. Primary carbonates are derived from the parent material and secondary carbonates are formed through the reaction of atmospheric CO2 with Ca+2 and Mg+2 (Lal and Kimble, 2000). 1). 2). The available data on the SIC pool are highly variable, probably because of the weak database and lack of standard methods. 1 Global Estimates of the Soil Organic Carbon Pool Reference 0–1 m (Pg) 0–2 m (Pg) 0–3 m (Pg) Jobbagy and Jackson (2000) Batjes (1996) Eswaran et al.
