  • Empowering farmers through carbon markets could help mitigate the effects of climate change through effective carbon sequestration.
  • Before carbon markets become viable, pricing accuracy and technology will need to advance.

“Regenerative farming not only has been proven to mitigate erosion and boost soil health — it may also be a huge opportunity to reduce the U.S. carbon footprint, gaining popularity among environmentalists as a potential tool in the fight against climate change.”
