Regenerative agriculture is increasingly potrayed in the media as a seemingly new form of agriculture. The amazingly simple solutions and quick successes that are often proclaimed in this context are worth a closer look. A first Stock-taking from the perspective of organic farming.
Werner Vogt-Kaute, Naturland e. V.
Many of the recommendations for regenerative agriculture are not new and have been implemented in organic farming for a long time: Examples include the strong emphasis on species-rich catch crops and mixed crops, and the high value placed on humus supply, soil life and microorganisms. Organic farming has also long recognised the importance of a more intensive approach to nutrient supply. Other suggestions or other forms of cultivation are unfamiliar at first, but can give organic farming systems impulses for further development. Many regenerative impulses are very welcome - as long as they stay grounded.
