Author : Chethan Babu, R. T , Praveen, B. R, Dileep, R
Climate change is affecting all our agriculture and how farmers grow food, matters more now than ever. Agriculture sector is one of the biggest emitters of CO2, which is a greenhouse gas (GHG) and serve as a major factor responsible for the climate change. Crop yields are plateauing with collapsed soil health. Regenerative agriculture is a conservation and rehabilitation approach to food and farming systems that regenerate and rejuvenate the soil and the environment. It is a farming practice with the lofty goal of not just slowing, but actually reversing climate change.
