The implementation of conservation agriculture can beneficially add to the soil’s organic matter, decrease erosion, and increase the soil’s water holding capacity. A substantial increase in carbon and nitrogen in the soil is also experienced. Ecological regeneration is another positive impact of conservation agriculture since it cleans waterways, improves water dynamics, helps avoid droughts, improves food quality and increases adaptability to climate change.
