mn farming: The DIRT is a fitting follow-up to our Spring dialogue, Climate Change Comes Home!
The topic of regenerative agriculture is inextricably linked to climate change—a changing climate has direct impacts on crop yield, water use, biodiversity and soil health. The agricultural industry will continue to face challenges that come with a rapidly changing environment, and the importance of regenerative agricultural techniques become increasingly essential with the threat of decreased food production.
