So often people fear that in order to improve their soil health and regenerate their soil it will come at the expense of their profitability and the success of their farming business. And while it is true that adopting regenerative farming practices can be a learning experience, and sometimes that comes with yield hits or disappointing results, when regenerative agriculture is done right with mentorship of experienced farmers there is no reason why you can’t have improved soil health as well as improved profitability!
Many individuals in the regenerative agriculture world were forced to figure a lot of this out themselves with trial and error. However, we don’t have to do it alone! There are countless resources including YouTube, podcasts, books, conferences and conventions where a wealth of knowledge and experience can be accessed for free or very reasonable costs.
