“We see the promise of agriculture to have a very positive impact on the world, both in terms of human health and planetary health. And it couldn't be a more exciting time to be involved in agriculture…” – Jeff Moyer, CEO, Rodale Institute
The Rodale Institute, based in Kutztown, Pennsylvania, has been the leader in regenerative organic agriculture for decades. Dedicated to growing the organic movement through research, farmer training, and consumer education, the Institute maintains its founding principle that healthy soil equals healthy food, which equals healthy people.
Jeff Moyer is Rodale Institute’s CEO and a world-renowned authority in organic agriculture. His expertise includes organic crop production systems with a focus on weed management and cover crops, and he’s perhaps most well-known for conceptualizing and popularizing the no-till roller-crimper, which was discussed at length in his 2011 book titled Organic No-Till Farming.
In this episode of the No-Till Farmer podcast series, we caught up with Jeff to talk about a new white paper put out recently by Rodale Institute, called “Regenerative Agriculture and the Soil Carbon Solution,” which identifies the potential of regenerative ag practices to sequester carbon and improve soil health while feeding the world. Tune in to hear about the Rodale Institute’s long history with the term “regenerative agriculture,” how regenerative ag techniques can be used to bring down today’s climbing levels of greenhouse gases, how different types of nitrogen impact the carbon cycle, the importance of biodiversity and much more.
