What are Canadian dairy farmers doing in the field to work towards net zero?
What farmers do to improve soil health also supports the local biodiversity!
Regenerative agriculture helps Canadian farmers to revitalize their land and reduce their need for fertilizers or pest control.
IMPROVING SOIL AND ITS ABILITY TO RETAIN WATER
Farmers can adopt and refine how they enhance soil health and conserve rainwater in multiple ways. Actions ranging from planting cover crops in the fields, to keeping wild areas in their landscape, all help to regenerate the land and environment.
Dairy farmers have an abundance of natural fertilizer – manure! Farmers use manure to improve soil health, support crop growth, and even reduce their farm’s carbon footprint.
