PMA Takes on Tech, Episode 10: Regenerative Agriculture: Where’s the Data?
/

Regenerative Agriculture is one of the most talked about trends in the food supply chain – from producers to consumers and large food brands. In some circles it has a emotional following based on strong beliefs, not science. Having to adapt has become the norm for many farmers across the world. Changes to weather patterns, climate unpredictability and the need to protect our natural environment means that producers are now looking for new ways to enhance the resiliency of farms, boosting sustainability and biodiversity in the process. Regen Ag is farming for outcomes in a specific location considering the entire ecosystem, not using the same playbook across all systems. In this episode, we talk to two brothers working with their family farm to transition to regenerative agriculture. We get a real life understanding of strengths and weaknesses and the need for more technology, not less. We also talk to the CEO of Monarch Tractor, a “tractor as platform” company that is a great tool for companies transitioning to Regen Ag.
