Carbon Farming: Fighting Climate Change with Regenerative Agriculture
Lowering atmospheric carbon dioxide to a level that will avoid catastrophic climate change requires massive shifts across all industries. While industrial agriculture is responsible for high levels of greenhouse gas emissions, there are more sustainable agricultural practices that can in fact help reverse climate change. The term ‘carbon farming’ refers to a set of agricultural practices that can reduce atmospheric carbon dioxide. Carbon farming techniques include different approaches for sequestering carbon in soil and plants, as well as decreasing carbon dioxide emissions from agricultural sites.
