Are regenerative and organic farming methods being discredited in NZ?

Questions are being asked on whether there seems to be a concerted effort by some NZ scientists to discredit regenerative and organic farming, to the extent that they are cherry-picking research reports to back their claims.

Allan Richardson, an organic/regen farmer from West Otago and board member of OANZ, believes this has been going on for years. Here, he talks to Dominic George of Today FM about his suspicions, and asks who is behind this negative campaign.

…Clearly there has been cherry-picking of reports and clearly they’re leaving out research that has been done which proves the benefits of organic and regenerative farming.”
