Greenhouse gas emissions have risen to 70 % for the last 30 years, and in spite of 1997 Kyoto Protocol are expected to double or triple in the 21st century. 8 °C since the late nineteenth century. In addition, 11 of 12 warmest years on record have occurred since 1995 (IPCC 2007). 15 °C per decade since 1975 (IPCC 2007). Atmospheric CO2 has been increasing since industrial revolution. Concentration of CO2 increased from 280 ppm in pre-industrial revolution to 390 ppm in 2010 (Lal 2014). Data on atmospheric CO2 concentration show that rate of increase is not linear.

Evaluation of cropping effects on carbon stocks in arable soils needs evaluating the data across different soil, crop and climate types. Follett et al. (2005) concluded from their five-year study conducted on an irrigated Vertisol (clayey, smectitic, isotermic, Udic Pellustert) that in a wheat-Been cropping system, N-rate and tillage had no effect on soil’s carbon sequestration, while a considerable carbon sequestration occurred under wheat-corn cropping system with no-till. Srinivasarao et al. (2009) studied carbon stocks for last 25 years at 21 sites under rainfed production system and management regimes on principal soil types and climatic conditions in India.
