Carbon sequestration potential for irrigated grazing lands is significant. We measured organic and
inorganic C stored in southern Idaho soils having long-term land use histories that supported native sagebrush
vegetation (NSB), irrigated pasture systems (IP), irrigated conservation tillage sites (ICT), and irrigated
moldboard plowing systems (IMP). This study estimates the amount of possible organic, inorganic and total C
sequestration if irrigated pasture land was expanded by 10%.
