Can Regenerative Agriculture Reverse Climate Change? | One Small Step
Some experts claim regenerative agriculture can reverse climate change by sequestering atmospheric CO2 in soil.
Regenerative organic farming emphasizes the importance of soil health and includes practices like cover cropping, crop rotation, holistic animal grazing, and the use of compost.
Proponents suggest it could increase biodiversity, make farms more resilient to floods, produce healthier food, and improve farm animal welfare.
‘Healthy soil equals healthy food equals healthy people,’ says Jeff Moyer, the CEO of the Rodale Institute, which has studied regenerative and organic farming methods for 70 years. ‘The age of chemical food production is gone. Regenerative organic agriculture is really the future.’
