Agriculture, Climate Change and Carbon Sequestration
Civil Eats reports that numerous proponents of regenerative agriculture are calling for development of standards and a label that would identify products raised with regenerative practices. Regenerative agriculture is touted as soil care that offers a means of increasing farm resilience to climate change while also sequestering carbon. Supporters view the concept as separate from the provisions of organic certification, but some worry that adding an additional label could lead to consumer confusion. Some say regenerative agriculture already is, or should be, included in the organic standards, while others predict that one or more regenerative labels will be developed in the near future, and that standards are critical to prevent the term overuse that leads to it becoming meaningless.
