Researchers Waking Up to Regenerative Potential

The adoption of regenerative agriculture globally has been farmer-led, and has now caught the attention of multinationals, such as McCain, PepsiCo, Nestle, Unilever, General Mills and Danone. But this has left scientists trying to play catch up, Dr Gwen Grelet said.

Regenerative Farming has been gaining momentum with farmers, who are rapidly adopting changes to improve the way they farm, for themselves and for the environment, but research has been lagging behind for a variety of factors. A project to identify the research areas that need to be looked at to move forward is being led by Dr. Gwen Grelet, a researcher at Manaaki-Whenua Landcare Research.
