In honor of Earth Day, CIBO invites you to take action with us to help save our planet by promoting regenerative agriculture.
What is Regenerative Agriculture?
Regenerative Agriculture is part of the solution farmers are adopting to address sustainable farm management and promote long-term productivity and profitability. With it, farmers improve soil health, reduce Greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions and remove carbon dioxide (CO2) from the atmosphere. Farming practices like conservation tillage (e.g., low-till, no-till, strip-till) cover cropping, erosion prevention, and precision fertilization all contribute to reducing and offsetting carbon while also restoring soil health and farm resiliency.
It all starts with the ground beneath our feet. Understanding the challenge is essential to understand the solution’s components and how they can best be implemented.
How can Regenerative Agriculture Mitigate Climate Impact
The reality is that the earth’s soil contains massive amounts of carbon – about 2,500 gigatons – 300% more(1) than is in the atmosphere; and it can hold even more. By allowing our soils to degrade, this carbon is released into the atmosphere, further perpetuating climate change. But by keeping our soils healthy, we can maintain the carbon in the ground and even grow it over time through the right kind of management practices. These practices are commonly known as regenerative agriculture.
Hear from Farmers Implementing Regenerative Agriculture
Join CIBO for a panel discussion with the people who are actually doing regenerative agriculture. Earth day is every day for farmers and sustainably focused agri-business. We host a discussion with Michael Tolle, owner of T&T farms, Dustin Madison, conservation and agronomy consultant and farmer, and Nathan Smith, farmer and agronomist with CIBO.
The webinar will cover regenerative agriculture, the business of farming, and the reasons why growers are increasing their sustainable farming practices. What better way to spend Earth Day than learning about more ways to help the planet? Learn more and claim your free seat today!
