What was the Soil Regenerative Agriculture Group?
The Soil Regenerative Agriculture Group brought together five farmers who worked together to establish how best to support, enhance and protect their farm soils. Their aim was to improve production, tailor inputs and maximise profitability. Many other benefits can be gained from healthy and resilient soils, ranging from improving water retention and drainage to supporting biodiversity and helping to lock up carbon on the farm.
What did the group look at?
With support from SAC Consulting, researchers and other industry specialists, the group explored a range of management techniques, treatments, crops and rotations to help to shape and protect a resilient farm soil.
How can you benefit?
We can all make changes, but it helps to hear about the experiences of other working farmers who have tried it out first. Watch the farmer videos and read their case studies and farm updates. We’ve produced a series of practical guides based around five principles of regenerative agriculture and provide a good starting point when thinking about improving your farm soils.
