Climate Change in Agriculture

The most recent drought report, which covers the period up to March 12, shows a three percent increase in dryness. The situation in Barton and its surrounding areas remains unchanged. Temperatures are expected to be higher than normal for the next six to 10 days (March 19 to 23), with normal precipitation.

Temperatures are likely to be normal for the next eight to fourteen days (March 21 to 27), with a minor chance of above-average precipitation.

In earlier columns, we discussed Regenerative Agriculture (RA) and how it works. RA contributes to environmental restoration while also benefiting farmers financially and agriculturally. It can also be useful in coping with climate change. Today, we’ll discuss how RA may help with climate change in general.

• To begin, keep in mind that RA assists farmers while also aiding in the fight against climate change. Combating climate change will also benefit farmers in the long run.

The benefits of RA, like many other major changes, do not manifest immediately. They build up gradually over time. It may seem simpler to give up on RA when we learn more and adjust our approach. Crops can better withstand harsh heat and a lack of water if the soil is improved, as previously discussed. Crops grow more efficiently when the soil is improved and more organic matter is added. This also helps to mitigate the consequences of climate change by lowering water runoff and erosion.

Why If farmers successfully transition to RA, they will consume fewer fossil fuels. Not only do we drive less on the fields, but we also use fewer chemicals. In addition, by storing more carbon in the soil, we can minimize the quantity of carbon dioxide released into the atmosphere as a result of farming.

• A large element of this is enhancing our ability to produce more food while generating less CO2. We can feed more people and protect farms in the future if we can grow more food without destroying more land.

• This idea is not exclusive to the United States. It has global significance. Working cooperatively in agriculture can feed everyone while also combating climate change.

• Finally, this requires government assistance. They need to spend in research to improve RA’s effectiveness. And we must assist farmers as they transition to RA and deal with the changing environment.
