AGRICULTURE IN INDIA

Facing a Crisis

Extractive agriculture is taking its toll. Soil degradation, groundwater depletion, increasing input costs, and reducing income add to the pressure. Household debt and farmer suicides rise year after year.

REGENERATIVE AGROECOLOGY

The Solution

Small farmers can have transformative global impact by building social capital, finding micro solutions for complex global crises such as climate change, and creating local economic wealth in depressed rural economies.

Regenerative Agriculture

“Renewal or restoration of a biological system (such as a forest) after injury or as a normal process… restored to a better, higher, or more worthy state”
