COURSE CONTENT

The Basics
This section clears up the terminology associated with regenerative agriculture and gives you a clear and concise way to understand and describe this approach.

We explore why regenerative agriculture works with ecological principles and processes rather than prescriptions and standards and introduce the FAI Regenerative Outcomes Framework.

Redefining productivity – the ecosystem processes

This section is all about increasing production and resilience by enhancing the performance of the land and its ecological processes:

Water Cycle

How to buffer and retain rainfall to be available to plants for longer throughout the season, optimizing growth and production.

Soil Health

How to build soil, and fertility to increase plant health and production, and reduce or eliminate the need for costly artificial fertilisers

Photosynthesis

How to maximise the most valuable free energy source – the sun – to increase the quality and quantity of primary production

Airflow

The importance of soil structure and airflow to support the fixation of free and unlimited atmospheric nitrogen and the cycling of other soil and plant nutrients essential to achieve a high production low input system

Nature’s dynamic networks

By increasing complexity in the system, plants and animals’ resilience to disease can be increased
Practices and tools for achieving regenerative outcomes

In this section, we cover the main tools and practices available to farmers and food companies to increase the productivity and effectiveness of their land.

We explain why regenerative agriculture is context-specific and how farmers can use it to achieve their economic, environmental and personal goals.

We explain how to monitor and measure regeneration.

We explain what it means to be adaptive – managing complex and ongoing processes through careful planning, monitoring and responding to feedback.

FURTHER INFORMATION

Before you embark on this course, we recommend you watch the Netflix documentary Kiss the Ground.
