With as much as 15% of greenhouse gas emissions currently coming from agricultural activity, we need to find ways to reduce and offset this by capturing carbon in the soil.
Regenerative farming is the use of farming and grazing practices that rebuild organic matter and restore degraded soil. On a large scale, this could reverse the effects of climate change by pulling excess carbon out of the atmosphere and storing it in the soil. Regenerative farming practices build fertile soils and nurture a healthy ecosystem. Some examples of common practices include managed grazing, composting, use of cover crops, and no-till systems.
Agriculture is a major contributor to global greenhouse gas emissions. With large-scale plant and animal production, methane gas is released into the atmosphere at a far higher rate than it can be captured.
