Regenerative Agriculture: An agronomic perspective

Recognising the weaknesses underpinning the regenerative agriculture philosophy is important for those researching it, for those practising it, and for those promoting it. This 2021 paper presents a perspective identifying such weaknesses – principally the lack of universal definition and the widely differing contexts in which regenerative agriculture is practised. Discussion is included in the paper’s conclusion, presenting some of the challenges facing both proponents and critics of regenerative agriculture, with particular advice for researchers wishing to engage further with regenerative agriculture.
