Can regenerative agriculture mitigate climate change? Does regenerative grazing sequester more carbon? Arguments abound as to the role of regenerative agriculture—and grazing specifically—as a natural climate solution, each with their own supporting and dissenting evidence. Understanding the way that carbon is introduced to the atmosphere, captured by soils, and stored by soils is critical to defining a position on this topic.
In this white paper, Drs. Jasmine Dillon and Megan Machmuller provide an overview of carbon cycling, climate change, and the potential for regenerative agriculture to contribute to climate mitigation efforts. Drs. Dillon and Machmuller also presented on a webinar about grazing and carbon which can be accessed here.
