Our civilization has shifted the balance of soil health towards a point where it no longer supports life without our inputs. This has not only made farming economically unfeasible for small landholders but also made environmentally harmful which contributes to climate change. Enter Regenerative Agriculture.
Regenerative farming practices, particularly those that raise soil organic matter, enhance soil health. In addition to improving the diversity and health of the soil biota, this also boosts biodiversity, enhances soil's ability to store water. It also offers great environmental benefit in the form of carbon sequestered through these set of practices at greater depths within the soil layers. This lowers atmospheric CO2 levels that harm the climate and eventually the food production cycle. The change in the nitrogen to carbon levels can change and enhance the soil structure to mitigate the massive, civilization-threatening loss of soil that comes as a result of human interventions.
Initiating the process of capturing data would require thorough understanding of the end goals. Here the process begins right from the baseline data on soil health, historic crop data, yield predictions and input consumption records. These records can be analyzed for tracking progress, reporting and decision-making by the agribusinesses or individual farmers involved. Field level data collection will not only build for a strong database for future but will also pave the way for proven methodologies that create impact. Regenerative farming is still in the gray area for assured benefits but we can rest assure that if the process is digitized then the benefits of the program can be quantified. These records on practices and activities can also help organizations who look into regenerative certifications as well.
Switching from your traditional farming practices and science to regenerative practices that mimic the very nature of growing requires solutions that guides on practices, monitor progress and enables effective implementation. KhetiBuddy’s solution resolves the fundamental challenges in practicing regenerative agriculture which includes tracking the very change in the soil health and its impact on the yield.
