Regenerative Agriculture is a system of farming principles and practices that increases biodiversity, enriches soils, improves watersheds, and enhances ecosystem services. Regenerative Agriculture aims to capture carbon in soil and aboveground biomass, reversing current global trends of atmospheric accumulation. At the same time, it offers increased yields, resilience to climate instability, and higher health and vitality for farming and ranching communities. The system draws from decades of scientific and applied research by the global communities of organic farming, agro-ecology, Holistic Management, and agroforestry. From the four principles of Regenerative Agriculture emerge a diversity of practices that progressively improve whole agro-ecosystems. In terms of rapid and effective carbon sequestration, peer-reviewed research shows the below rates for the different practices.
