Removing carbon dioxide through photosynthesis
Photosynthesis is the natural process by which plants absorb carbon dioxide from the atmosphere. Plants retain the carbon, using it to grow leaves, stems, and roots. They also release some of the carbon through their roots into the soil as simple sugars. This contributes to a healthy soil ecosystem, rich in nutrients.
By adopting regenerative farming practices, farmers can lock down this carbon in the soil, rather than releasing it back into the atmosphere through practices such as tilling.
