At Down to Earth visitor will have the opportunity to learn all about regenerative farming strategies and it’s principles via industry experts, hub debates, workshops, and farm tours. Come along and learn all about
Although research is still limited, it is thought regenerative farming practices can improve soil health and diversity and lead to better crop yields and livestock output.
Regenerative farming creates better conditions for growing high-quality, nutrient-dense food that can better survive droughts and remove excess carbon dioxide from the atmosphere through carbon sequestration.
Water and soil health are intrinsically linked. Improving soil fertility can help water infiltration leading to less runoff, erosion and pollution. It also makes land more drought tolerant.
Research suggests regenerative agriculture can reverse climate change by sequestering atmospheric CO2 in the soil
Building healthy soils and improving the organic matter and the natural living biodiversity in the soil enhances the ground’s ability to draw down carbon from the air and store it underground.
Using manure effectively, making more from grazing and improving crop productivity through better soil management are vital to a farm’s sustainability.
