Abstract: Agriculture in India has started from ancient time by our ancestor but in past few decades, some erratic change attracted the attention of global researcher though some warm issues at global level viz climate change, global warming, greenhouse gases (GHGs) food security. The level of carbon di oxide (CO2) gases in atmosphere is continuously increased with the decade of 1980. Carbon sequestration on agricultural fields is feasible with a range of soil management approach and can be considerable with improved planning. Carbon sequestration of emitted carbon emissions is now essential to mitigate or unlikely to stabilize our altering atmosphere. There are many management strategies for removing carbon from the environment and fixing it into the soil. These mitigation strategies of CO2 vary with different location as well as soil types. It is become a issue for researcher that duration and amount of carbon sequestration by agricultural fields is what up to the level but precise management practice can able to lower down the carbon di oxide level up to certain level.
