Farmers are changing the world with REGENERATIVE AGRICULTURE – Groundswell Short Film

6



FARMERS ARE CHANGING THE WORLD, RESTORING THEIR SOIL BY CONVERTING TO REGENERATIVE AGRICULTURE.

For over 70 years farmers have been pressured to make agriculture and food production more and more industrialised.

‘Soils are disturbed so intensively that the earth literally moves, causing massive degradation, flooding, water pollution and erosion.’

We have been losing land area, essentially from erosion at the rate of about 10 million, 7 – 10 million hectares per year, which is almost the size of Portugal.

All over the world farmers are developing an alternative system to regenerate soil instead of eroding it. To protect and increase water retention by covering with mulch and by growing continuous diverse crops, without tilling or ploughing. It’s called Conservation Agriculture or no-till farming.

Be a part of the revolution, OUR SOILS NEED YOU.

    Excellent video for teaching soil conservation techniques and explaining no till farming

    Superb. We need to hear more stories of no till and cover crop experiences from farmers all around the UK on different soil types. This will help inspire and create faith in the techniques.
