Letting crop residues rot in the field is a climate win

University of Copenhagen/Faculty of Science – For quite some time, farmers and researchers have been focusing on how to bind carbon to soil. Doing so makes food crops more nutritious and increases yields. However, because carbon is converted into CO2 when it enters the atmosphere, there is a significant climate benefit to capturing carbon in […]

Regenerative ag’s climate change link in doubt

Regenerative agriculture can do many things, but it cannot solve climate change, say experts with the World Resources Institute By Robert Arnason Glacier FarmMedia staff Regenerative agriculture can do many things. It can improve soil health. It can make farming more resilient to droughts, floods and weather extremes. It may make land more productive. But […]

Organic research looks at potential for climate change mitigation through soil health

By Lorraine Stevenson and Laura Rance OrganicBiz staff New research looking at soil organic carbon adds to a growing view organic systems are both more energy efficient and store more soil carbon. Tracy Misiewicz, The Organic Centre’s associate director of science programs, says that contributes to climate change mitigation. On average, organic crops consume 60 […]
