Peterson and Control Union are pleased to release its exciting new regenerative agriculture platform, regenagri, at the Innovation Forum: The Future of Food virtual conference on 2 June 2020.
Regenerative agriculture focuses on sustainable farming practices that promote soil restoration and carbon sequestration, such as diverse cropping, rotational grazing and agroforestry.
Franco Costantini, managing director at Control Union UK, will launch regenagri to delegates as well as taking part in a discussion on regenerative agriculture and food supply chains, as part of the conference’s extensive programme of virtual events.
“In a growing movement, regenagri is a regenerative agriculture initiative aimed at securing the health of the land and the wealth of those who live on it,” says Mr Costantini.
“Through its membership platform, regenagri is designed for continuous improvement of agriculture practice, promoting holistic farming techniques that increase soil organic matter, encourage biodiversity and sequester CO2 from the atmosphere.”
The platform is aimed at farms and organisations looking to restore the land they work and make it carbon positive. “We will empower farmers and organisations to transition towards more ecologically sustainable practices via the regenagri Digital Hub, consultancy and certification.”
Members of regenagri can gain numerous benefits, including improved yield quality, greater access to markets and data in regenerative agriculture and accreditation from a global certifying body.
“Peterson and Control Union seeks to bring together supporters of regenerative agriculture to address issues around soil degradation and the climate crisis, and implement sustainable strategies in food and farming sectors,” concludes Mr Costantini.
