Do you know what is meant by the term regenerative farming? Is it the same as conservation agriculture? How does it differ from organic farming?
Join Rural Business Network to hear from expert Steve Townsend, co-founder of BASE UK and director of Soil First Farming as he answers these questions.
BASE-UK is an independent knowledge exchange organisation run by farmers for farmers and individuals interested in making agriculture sustainable using conservation and regenerative systems such as no-till, strip-till, cover crops, companion crops and integrating livestock. Our mission is to share and further knowledge on regenerative agriculture, to encourage the sustainability of our agricultural industry by promoting more diverse rotations and less invasive, cost effective methods of establishment.
