Regenerative agriculture: one farm at a time to regenerate the Earth

At a time when climate change is in the news and sustainability is becoming a top priority, the way we produce food is changing.

At a time when climate change is in the news and sustainability is becoming a top priority, the way we produce food is changing. Regenerative agriculture, often known as RegenAg or RegAg, is a holistic approach to farming that promises not only sustainability but also healing. But what is regenerative agriculture and why is it gaining in popularity? Let's get to the heart of the matter!

What is the definition of Regenerative Agriculture (RegAg)?
Regenerative Agriculture is a set of farming practices that aim to restore and improve the overall environment of the farm. It prioritizes soil health, recognizing that a healthy ecosystem above ground begins with a vibrant soil full of life below. Unlike some farming methods that aim only to maintain current conditions, regenerative agriculture seeks to improve and restore.
We frequently come across varying definitions of what regenerative agriculture is, not least because it is, to say the least, a buzzword, widely used by the media and business alike.

Fundamental principles of regenerative agriculture:
We could extract some fundamental principles of regenerative agriculture:
- Soil health
- Diversified crop rotations
- Integration of grazing and livestock
- Agroforestry
- Cover crops

Why practice regenerative agriculture?
Carbon sequestration: Because healthy soils have an exceptional capacity to "absorb" carbon from the atmosphere, regenerative agriculture is a powerful tool in the fight against climate change.

Water conservation: Regenerative practices improve the soil's ability to retain water. This reduces the need for irrigation and makes farmland more resistant to drought.

Improving biodiversity: Regenerative farming methods promote a diverse ecosystem, guaranteeing a balanced environment that is resistant to pests and disease.

Economic benefits: Although there may be a transition period, regenerative practices can reduce the demand for costly synthetic inputs in the long term, resulting in savings for farmers.

Nutrient-rich food: healthier soils generate more nutrient-rich crops, resulting in better food quality.
