Guiness recruits 44 farms to participate in regenerative agriculture pilot
Tasty beer just got tastier.
Ireland's biggest brewery and beer exporter has recruited 44 farms across Ireland to participate in a regenerative agriculture pilot that's focused on reducing greenhouse gas emissions from barley production by 30%.
The pilot has recently entered into its second year and the company says their efforts have already resulted in crop soils absorbing a significant amount of nitrogen, phosphorous and potassium “that would usually go into water, but is now able to be recycled into the next crop.”
Guinness said the next project milestone includes “examining how fertiliser selection can reduce emissions and the establishment of baseline biodiversity measurements for birds and pollinators.”
I'll raise a pint to that!
