Blog: Regenerative agriculture and the food system

In this blog post, Samuel Smith of international sustainability non-profit Forum for the Future sets out research he intends to conduct on how regenerative agriculture is understood, the strategies that could be used to scale it up, and how the food system would be affected by widespread conversion to regenerative agriculture.

Practices that are generally seen as falling under the banner of regenerative agriculture include no-till farming, precision agriculture, low inputs of fertilisers or pesticides, agroforestry, cover cropping, biochar, holistic/mob grazing, rewilding and robotics.

The blog post notes that both established corporations and startups are moving into the regenerative agriculture sector.
