Regenerative agriculture

The long-term effects of traditional farming practices pose an existential threat to the environment. Harmful side effects such as chemical pollution, greenhouse gas production, and water scarcity have degraded ecosystems, leading to a significant biodiversity loss and contributing to climate change. As the climate crisis looms, the agricultural industry must come to terms with its ecological impact and adopt responsible and sustainable methods to secure the future of our planet. At the forefront of this movement is regenerative agriculture.

Regenerative agriculture is an umbrella-term describing farming and grazing practices that reverse climate change, enhance soil health, and restore biodiversity. While traditional commercial farming models emphasise crop yields and quality, regenerative agriculture seeks to strike a balance between profitability and environmentally sustainable production, by focusing on sustainable farming practices such as conservation tilling, cover cropping, agroforestry, crop rotation, and soil carbon sequestration.

What are the benefits of regenerative agriculture for producers?

While the ecological benefits of regenerative agriculture are clear, convincing farmers to embrace it remains challenging due to the initial cost of transition, the need for specialised knowledge and training, and uncertainty regarding short-term economic returns.

To date, regenerative agriculture has struggled to scale up fast enough to achieve a substantial impact, but this will improve as more producers adopt it. There are several proven commercial benefits for producers who are considering the transition to regenerative agriculture, including:

Enhanced soils:

Minimal tilling, cover cropping, and composting can foster healthier and more fertile soils, ultimately leading to improved crop yields and higher quality produce. Healthy soils also safeguard the future of food production for the next generation, ensuring long term resilience and reliability.
By minimising the use of chemical fertilisers, pesticides, and herbicides, farmers can save on input costs and increase profit margins.


By proactively adopting regenerative farming practices, agricultural producers can maintain compliance with evolving sustainability and ESG regulations and potentially benefit from government funding.
Consumers are increasingly conscious of where and how their food is sourced. Implementing a regenerative approach not only offers a unique selling point and access to premium markets, but it can also result in heightened consumer demand and the ability to command higher prices.

Can regenerative agriculture reverse climate change?

Regenerative agriculture alone can’t reverse climate change but contributes significantly to mitigation efforts. By improving soil health, it helps in carbon sequestration, reducing greenhouse gases in the atmosphere.

How does regenerative agriculture sequester carbon?

Regenerative agriculture enhances soil health through practices like cover cropping and no-till farming, increasing organic matter in the soil. This organic matter captures and holds carbon dioxide, effectively removing it from the atmosphere.

How to invest in regenerative agriculture?

Investing in regenerative agriculture can be done through direct investment in regenerative farms, purchasing shares in companies focusing on sustainable agricultural practices, or supporting organizations and funds dedicated to regenerative agriculture development.

What are the benefits of regenerative agriculture?

Benefits include improved soil health, enhanced biodiversity, better water retention, increased crop resilience, and carbon sequestration. It also often leads to healthier, more nutritious food.

Is regenerative agriculture profitable?

Regenerative agriculture can be profitable. It reduces input costs, improves land resilience, and can yield premium pricing for sustainably grown products. However, initial transition costs and learning curves may affect short-term profitability.
