Regenerative Agriculture

Regenerative agriculture is a system of farming that aims to conserve and enhance the soil health, organic matter and biodiversity.   

The principles of regenerative agriculture help improve farm sustainability e.g. improved soil structure can reduce flooding in periods of heavy rainfall, whilst increasing the biodiversity of crops can help with pest and disease management in arable crops.

The video series below explores some of the principles of regenerative agriculture.

The Soil Regenerative Agriculture Group is made up of five farmers working together to establish how to best support, enhance and protect their farm soils.  They are aiming to improve production and tailor inputs, maximising profitability.  Find out more about the group, their latest updates and related Practical Guides on the Farming For a Better Climate webpage.
