The Terraton Initiative is leading the charge to incentivize grower adoption of regenerative farming practices. These methods have been implemented by a small group of farmers for decades, but haven’t been encouraged at scale. They include things like not disturbing the soil, planting cover crops so the ground is always covered by plants, reducing the use of chemicals and fertilizers, rotating different crops on the soil, and integrating livestock—and have the potential to significantly improve the health of our soil and planet. By encouraging these types of farming practices, we can harness a scalable and affordable solution to address climate change—starting today.
Did you know that regenerative farming practices enable our soils to pull carbon dioxide from our atmosphere? By collaborating with farmers, we have the potential to draw down one trillion tons of carbon dioxide from the atmosphere—the amount of carbon dioxide that has accumulated in the atmosphere since the beginning of the industrial revolution—and address the damage caused by it.
A global challenge can only be overcome with a global effort. Together, we can support farmers transitioning to regenerative farming methods, and return one trillion tons of carbon dioxide in our atmosphere to the soil. As of June 2019, farmers have submitted 11.5 million acres of farmland to be a part of the solution. For us, for you, and for future generations—let’s act now.Learn More
