Mankind’s autumn harvest rituals have become huge technological spectacles as we struggle to feed our burgeoning world population. Just as important—but harder to see—is what Annie is doing with her soil: She’s using no-till agriculture. By reducing tillage (not plowing and leaving crop residue in place), she can actually help in capturing carbon from the atmosphere and sequestering it in the soil. For a long time, world agriculture has been depleting soil carbon and releasing it into the atmosphere. Reversing that trend, especially on large-scale farms like Annie’s, could be a big win all around. // IndigoAg is unlocking agriculture’s potential to help reverse climate change. That’s the vision behind the Terraton Initiative, a global movement with the goal of using regenerative farming practices to take one trillion tons of carbon dioxide from the atmosphere.
