Conservation agriculture: an overview - We must protect the environment that feeds us. We must protect our families. While we have produced food crops through conventional tillage for many years, this has come at great cost to our environment and soil productivity with negative impact on our households' food security. Conservation agriculture offers us the best opportunity for climate change adaptation.

While we have produced food crops through conventional tillage for many years, this has come at great cost to our environment and soil productivity with negative impact on our households' food security.

Functional soils play a key role in the supply of clean water and resilience to floods and droughts. Water infiltration through soil traps pollutants and prevents them from leaching into the groundwater. Moreover, the soil captures and stores water, making it available for absorption by crops, and thus minimizing surface evaporation and maximizing water use efficiency and productivity.

Soils store and filter water - Improving food security and our resilience to floods and droughts. This means well manage soil can create a resilient mechanism to combat potential threats to the system.

WATER EFFICIENT VEGETABLE FARMING FOR CLIMATE CHANGE RESILIENCE IN ARID AND SEMI ARID AREAS

Vegetables remain a key component in household food consumption on daily basis. Although they are not main meal they provide accompanim.

Resilient: Within the context of historic drought and increasing urban demand, “Resilient” highlights the work of innovative farmers and ranchers across western Colorado who are adapting to a drier climate. They are building soil, enhancing irrigation efficiency, and saving water, all while forging resilience in the face of great change.

Building a resilient, connected network can not only address water efficiency -- it has the potential to change our relationship to food and perhaps even undo the less savory sides of mass food production.

Not only does hemp grow in a variety of climates and soil types it also grows very tightly spaced and has a fast growing rate (which leads to high yields). Ever wonder where the nickname "weed" comes from? The hemp plant grows like one obviating the need for most pesticides (it is naturally resistant to most pests) herbicides fungicides and thriving on less water than most crops. Because of its resiliency it has also been flagged as a natural way to clean up soil pollution. Hemp can be used…
