Farmers are experiencing the environmental destruction and financial hardships caused by climate change. Altered growing cycles, poor soil health, and unpredictable water cycles have left many farms producing less while investing more. Regenerative agriculture holds the potential to sequester carbon and combat the impacts of the climate crisis. Join Nobel prize winner Dr. Keith Paustian from Colorado State University and Dr. Adam Chambers from the United States Department of Agriculture as they discuss regenerative agriculture and its promise for farmers and foresters.
