Regenerative agriculture, a farming practice that prioritizes soil health improvement over time, has emerged as a powerful tool in the fight against climate change. By employing regenerative practices, farmers can build soil organic matter and enhance carbon sequestration, contributing to a healthier planet.

Across North America, the adoption of sustainable practices is on the rise, presenting an opportunity to transform croplands into even greater carbon sinks.

The Conversation Cropping Protocol, the first generation of carbon management practices for farmers, encourages no-till practices and minimizes soil disturbance during plowing and tillage. As a result, carbon release into the atmosphere is significantly reduced, leading to an increase in soil organic matter and the development of healthier and more productive soils.

Fertilizer application is a crucial component of any regenerative agriculture system. The 4R Nutrient Stewardship approach guides farmers in applying the right amount of fertilizer, at the right time, and in the right place. The NERP protocol for nitrogen management assists farmers in effectively measuring and managing nitrogen utilization, reducing unnecessary emissions while supporting regenerative practices.

Cover crops serve as another valuable tool in regenerative farming. They protect soil from erosion caused by wind and rain and promote the growth of beneficial microorganisms that contribute to soil health. Certain cover crops have the added advantage of naturally fixing nitrogen in the soil, reducing the need for synthetic fertilizers.

At Carbon RX, we firmly believe that a healthy carbon economy includes farmers. By adopting modern agricultural practices, farmers possess the capacity to increase their land's carbon holding capacity and make meaningful contributions to global greenhouse gas emissions reduction. Through collaboration with farmers, we establish meaningful measures and quantify their positive impact on the planet, utilizing the latest and most progressive management practices while applying appropriate carbon protocol methodologies tailored to their unique management systems.

Together, we strive to create a sustainable future through regenerative agriculture, leading the charge in combatting climate change and securing a healthier planet for generations to come.
