EPISODE 4, January 22nd, 2020:
In terms of land use today there are three things that really matter – high quality food production, climate change mitigation, and nature restoration. A great farm must do all three. In this episode of Farm Gate we are talking to a rock star of regenerative farming, a phenomenally successful sugar producer, an inventor, and philosopher. His sugar farm is a living proof that regenerative agriculture provides the blueprint for the global land use reform we all depend upon, and the transition we urgently need.
Farm Gate host ffinlo Costain talks to:
Leontino Balbo Jr., from Sao Paulo, Brazil, is the executive vice-president of the Balbo Group. His farm yields 35% of the world’s organic sugar, sequesters more carbon than it emits, and his land is now one of the most biodiversity-rich areas in the region.
