$25 million was awarded to Mizzou for its regenerative agricultural project
A new grant to Missouri farmers will help them make millions.
The University of Missouri has received a $25 million grant to help 3,000 farmers combat climate change.
The largest federal grant MU received from the U.S. Department of Agriculture is in its history.
The five-year project will be focused on expanding regenerative agriculture in the state.
Regenerative agriculture can be described as rotating grazing areas, diversifying crops, and reducing or eliminating tilling.
These practices lead to better soil and deeper roots.
This in turn helps to sequester more carbon dioxide from the atmosphere.
Myers stated that regenerative practices can help sustain the food system over the long term.
