The term regenerative agriculture, first coined in the 1990s, has made a comeback as concerns over the negative state of the environment continue to mount. Regenerative agriculture removes carbon out of the air and puts it into the soil by having a continuously planted land. Therefore, is being touted as a solution to climate change crisis and also to the food scarcity challenges (by providing more food). However, according to the article, some believe that regenerative agriculture is just the latest buzzword and cannot do all its supporters claim it can for the environment.
Regenerative agriculture could work in Lebanon – and local farmers should consider its application – since it is a cross between organic and conventional farming with a bit of a return to traditional ways of growing.
