INNOVATIONS FOR
REGENERATIVE LANDSCAPE MANAGEMENT

CASE STUDIES OF REGENERATIVE AGRICULTURE IN PRACTICE

In 2011-12 Soils for Life identified a number innovative farming enterprises and landscape management organisations achieving success through regenerative landscape management. These farmers are demonstrating profitable and sustainable farming while continuing to improve the natural resource base. We captured their experiences in a series of case studies and produced a report explaining the need for widespread adoption of regenerative practices in our agricultural landscapes.

The Innovations for Regenerative Landscape Management Project:

  • outlined that widespread application of regenerative landscape management practices provides techniques for sustainable quality food and fibre production for a growing population, reduces dependence on high energy inputs, builds resilience to a changing climate, reverses degradation to the environment and supports essential ecosystem services
  • identified that integrated management of soil, water, vegetation and biodiversity are fundamental to regenerative landscape management
  • produced 17 innovative farming and 2 extension organisation case studies illustrating profitable regenerative agriculture in practice
  • revealed that consistent principles underlie the application of regenerative agriculture, regardless of enterprise type or location
  • hosted a series of Field Days across 2012-14 to showcase and share case study farmer experiences and techniques

The Soils for Life team is extremely grateful for the openness and hospitality shown by each of our case study participants in sharing their stories.
