Overview of Regenerative Agriculture in Aotearoa

October 2021

The 1st webinar in a series of 5 about regenerative agriculture in New Zealand, held on 26 October 2021. Speakers: Dr Gwen Grelet (Manaaki Whenua – Landcare Research), Hugh Good (Beef + Lamb NZ), Dr Charles Merfield (Future Farming Centre), Dr Selai Letica (Our Land and Water), Sam Lang (independent social researcher).

This webinar discussed 5 reports that provide insights into regenerative agriculture in Aotearoa New Zealand in 2021.

New Zealand farmers, industry, processors and marketers have an increasing interest in the role of regenerative agriculture for our food production systems. This highlights the need to better understand what regenerative agriculture means in the context of our country – and for scientific testing of its claimed benefits.

In this webinar, the Our Land and Water regenerative agriculture project leads discuss the series of reports being released over the coming month and how they went about defining what research is most needed in Aotearoa.

This webinar also provides an overview of some of the regenerative principles applied in New Zealand, and thoughts on how regenerative agriculture emerged from the many ‘alternative agricultures’. The webinar also provides broad insights on questions asked about regenerative agriculture by four key New Zealand agricultural sectors, and the different considerations and opportunities for Māori farming entities.
