regenerative agriculture for climate resilience

5th December, 2019

Deakin University’s Centre for Regional and Rural Future’s and the City of Whittlesea are calling for farmers across Victoria to help investigate the potential of regenerative agriculture systems.

The Regenerative Agriculture for Climate Resilience project considers regenerative agriculture and its potential to support transformative change and greater climate resilience for cities and regional centres.

The survey is the first stage of the project and is open to all farmers and agricultural practitioners across Victoria over 18 years old.

Researchers would also like to hear from volunteers who would be interested in participating in the project’s second research stage. This will involve a comprehensive field analysis and comparison between five regenerative agriculture farms and five conventional practice farms to investigate key parameters, such as soil health, carbon composition and productivity.

Everyone who completes the survey will have the opportunity to opt into the second research stage. All farmers practising all styles of farming are encouraged to be involved.
