Microphone Why better data is the key to regenerative agriculture

Franco Costantini, managing director Control Union UK, talks with Ian Welsh about why a shift to regenerative agriculture practices is a route to long term sustainability for farming.

He argues that current approaches will mean that top soils fail to support crops within 60 years, which is why improvements such as stimulating biodiversity, better carbon sequestration and increasing soil organic matter are so important. Also vital are the ability to measure improvements and a holistic approach across the agriculture industry.
