VIS.114-Regenerative Secrets-AC22.USCC

Regenerative Agriculture Principles work well regardless of the environment, the foods being grown or raised, and the climate under which they are raised. Direct experiences with farms in all major climate regions and in many different production focuses shows that tremendous resilience can be achieved through proper application of the Six Principles of Soil Health and the Three Rules of Adaptive Stewardship. This resilience is exhibited through enhanced soil biological function, increased soil water infiltration and retention, better cycling of nutrients, more efficient water cycle, and a higher degree of diversity in plants, microbial species, beneficial insects, bird populations and wildlife. As you build diversity and functional capacity of the soil, the ability of the supporting ecosystem to withstand challenges and stressors improves significantly. Case studies conducted by Understanding Ag show that this resiliency and ecosystem strength are real and exist in all major climates in North America. Case studies representing the northern, eastern, southern, western, and arid climates reveal tremendous resilience in the face of floods, drought, extreme cold, heat and humidity. These case studies represent the regions from which the summit attendees are from and show impacts ranging from quicker recovery from flood, drought and fire, to positive alterations in local weather patterns. Data will be presented to support reported results and validate the ability of regenerative practices to be restorative. In summary, we will show the positive benefits of regenerative principles and practices on soil health, plant health, animal health, ecosystem and climate health to human health. These results benefit everyone, whether they are a farmer or a consumer. When regenerative agriculture is correctly applied, everyone wins.
