How does hemp regenerative agriculture work?
- Conventional agriculture is responsible for 25% of the world’s carbon emissions
- Hemp can stall or even reverse our planet’s carbon emissions by regenerating a farm’s degraded topsoil, which acts as a “Carbon Sink”
- Scientists have concluded that planting hemp has the potential to reduce the world’s carbon emissions by 10%
- Regenerated soil matter not only captures carbon, but will increase the farmer’s yield and quality of product as the earth becomes revitalized with nutrients and microbes
- Beyond the USDA’s Certified Organic program, the ROC takes it a step further, incentivizing farmers to adopt no till/minimal till, crop rotations, cover crops, rotational grazing, animal welfare, and social fairness
