In order to reduce CO2 emission and develop best management practices for deforested agricultural activities (Cameron Highland Malaysia), the formation and emission rates of CO2 in the current land management and the factors affecting the process must be understood. The Total Organic Carbon (TOC), land moistures and temperature of the land use are evaluated. This has to be correlated to the agricultural activities. We propose to use peat treatment that will enable the carbon increased over time during the agricultural activities. The land quality is evaluated and the carbon content using peat treatment is investigated during the land use changes. Generally, the land quality could enhance the carbon reduction in the atmosphere as well as improving the land quality by using peat treatment.
