Question 2 of 5
What regenerative agriculture practices are used to improve the soil?Correct
In practical terms regenerative organic agriculture is foremost an organic system refraining from the use of synthetic pesticides and inputs, which disrupt soil life, and fossil-fuel dependent nitrogen fertilizer, which is responsible for the majority of anthropogenic N2O emissions. It is a system designed to build soil health. Regenerative organic agriculture is comprised of practices including (at a minimum): cover crops, residue mulching, composting and crop rotation. Conservative-tillage to no-tillage is a regenerative practice integral to rebuilding the soil, and soil-carbon sequestration. Excessive, intensive tillage destroys the soil.

Question 3 of 5
Monoculture is natural and found in nature.Correct
Monocultures are not found in nature. They create a very unbalanced ecosystem which leads to countless problems: plant diseases, insect imbalances, reduced soil fertility, reduced wildlife habitat, reduced crop resilience to drought, heat, etc.” Traditional agriculture employs “monocultures”, which means only one or two plants are grown in a given area and all other species are relentlessly exterminated. Regenerative agriculture, on the other hand, employs “Polycultures”, which refers to growing many different species of plants in one area. Plants growing in a polyculture with many other plants are healthier and more resilient. Polycultures replenish the soil, promote biodiversity, and provide natural protection against pests and diseases.
