Regenerative agriculture a tool by smallscale farmers to combat climate change

Smallholder farmers in Africa are facing significant challenges due to climate change and land degradation, which are negatively impacting crop production and supply chains. However, regenerative agriculture has emerged as an effective solution to combat these issues and restore soil health. By implementing farming practices such as organic farming, cover cropping, mulching, minimum tillage, micro-dosing, and an inter-cropping system of maize and high-yielding, nitrogen-fixing climbing beans, alongside agroforestry crops, smallholder farmers can improve soil fertility and restore land. In Kenya, at least 1% of smallholder farmers have already adopted regenerative agricultural practices to mitigate the impacts of climatic shockshttps://citizen.digital/opinion-blogs/opinion-smallholder-farmers-combat-climate-change-and-restore-soil-health-through-regenerative-agriculture-n320418

            The key is that regenerative agriculture does no harm to the land, and in fact improves it.

              I think a lot of farmers would be willing to try this out

                  owing to increased drought in Africa, regenerative agriculture will be a game change for the continent.
