Regenerative Agriculture is a system that farmers use to harness the power of nature to build up the soil, enrich it with nitrogen and other key nutrients, reduce dependence on synthetic fertilizers, and improve yield. This type of farming also has the added benefit of capturing carbon from the atmosphere and sequestering it in the biomass and soil. Like many things we discover in nature, regenerative agriculture shows us that doing one thing the right way yields good results in other ways.
We work with farmers to foster regenerative techniques that help slow or even reverse soil erosion. Farmers who raise livestock as well as corn crops are able to employ their manure to fertilize their fields, taking back soil nutrients and reducing the need to buy synthetic fertilizers. Farmers deal with drainage and drought, insects, bad weather, and other causes of crop damage, and they use high-technology solutions to monitor the productivity of their fields and employ their machinery in the most efficient ways.
Gevo works with farmers to incorporate regenerative techniques into their everyday farming practices, reaping the benefits through improved yields, reduced costs, and even better carbon sequestration.
