Last updated: February 1, 2017

Regenerative farming methods are used to increase soil health. The methods used are associated with organic farming methods and strive to increase the concentration of organic matter in soil, promote biodiversity and increase resistance to plant pests and diseases.

Safeopedia Explains Regenerative Farming

It is often argued that traditional commercial agricultural methods impoverish soil and increase dependence on fertilizers and pesticides. Regenerative farming may include methods such as low-tillage systems, mulching and composting, and the use of green manures to improve the organic content of soils. Synthetic pesticides and fertilizers are avoided, since these effect the natural balance created by soil organisms. Regenerative farming may include strategies aimed at improving the health of other natural ecosystems like streams and woodlands.
