Climate Resilience: Regenerative Agriculture Research

Deakin University’s Centre for Regional and Rural Future’s (CeRRF) and the City of Whittlesea have formed an industry partnership to build on the successful Land Capability Assessment project with an investigation into the potential of Regenerative Agriculture systems.

The Regenerative Agriculture for Climate Resilience project considers the concept of Regenerative Agriculture and the potential of it to support transformative change for greater climate resilience of the cities and regional centres it surrounds and provides for.

All farmers across Victoria are invited to participate in this important research. This survey is the first stage of the project and is open to all farmers and agricultural practitioners across Victoria over 18 years old. As a part of the survey, we are asking for volunteers who would be interested in participating in the second stage of the research. This will involve a comprehensive field analysis and comparison between five Regenerative Agriculture farms and five conventional practice farms to consider key parameters, such as soil health, carbon composition and productivity. At the end of the survey, you will have the opportunity to opt into this further research stage. All farmers practicing all styles of farming, not only regenerative, are encouraged to be involved.
