Old methods rethought. Discussion & Roundtable
How can Germany’s agriculture be competitive in the long term? This session aimed to answer this question by discussing regenerative agriculture and its minimally invasive methods. Different application examples showed how diverse regenerative agriculture can be: Pioneers from Germany and the USA explained how the system can be adapted to the respective farm.
How can new technologies also show the connection between healthy soils, healthy products and healthy people? How can we help farmers to be rewarded for their investments in biodiversity, water storage and carbon storage? This topic was the focus of the Farm & Food Congress in January 2020 in Berlin.
