Regenerative Agriculture and its Potential in Climate-Smart Commodities to Enhance the Sustainability of Underserved and Limited Resources Farmers in South Carolina

South Carolina State University,
U.S. Department of Agriculture


The project would use its regional extension centers and county extension agents to recruit small scale, limited resource and underserved farmers in South Carolina interested in adopting and implementing best management practices to grow climate-smart commodities, such as leafy greens and cover crops. The recruited farmers would be incentivized to adopt emission reduction, climate-smart and conservation agricultural practices to maximize soil health, and carbon sequestration.

The project would establish local and regionally based small farmer cooperative to market the climate-smart cash crop commodities.
