Abstract

•We measured soil organic carbon (SOC) in two agronomic long-term trials.•None of the tested treatments turned out successful in sequestering SOC long-term.•Instead, SOC decreased significantly over time in the vast majority of treatments.•Hence, these soils do not offset anthropogenic greenhouse gas emissions elsewhere.
