What is Regenerative Agriculture?
Have you noticed that the world has lost over a third of its arable land? And the cause is due to factors such as agriculture malpractices, erosion, habitat destruction of local species, deforestation amongst others. It is something few are talking about. However, the loss of arable land can lead to food shortages, reduced soil fertility, and water issues, facts that have a tremendous impact on our health.
This is why it is important that we work to conserve and protect arable land and promote sustainable land management practices. At Unispice, Regenerative Agriculture is at the core of what we do. Through a technical and data-driven approach, measuring all key variables, we have developed our system, utilizing practices ranging from cover crops to biomass regeneration and crop rotations to counteract the negative impacts of farming.
Here is how we do it:
° Biomass regeneration is the process by which we turn living or recently dead organic matter into an ecosystem. Increasing biomass can help improve soil health by increasing soil organic matter, nutrient cycling, and supporting a diverse range of soil microorganisms.
° Our crop rotation method reverses to a specific order of planting to improve soil fertility. By rotating crops with different nutrient needs, we can fix nitrogen in the soil, reduce erosion, improve soil structure, and increase crop yields.
° We are also focused on the proper management of water resources, fertilizers, and plant biodiversity to attract pollinators.
° Cover crops are grown primarily to benefit the soil rather than for harvesting. We use them to improve soil health by preventing soil erosion and soil compaction
Due to the negative impact of traditional farming and agriculture the quality of the land has deteriorated over time. At Unispice, we’ve transformed barren lands into flourishing oases in record time. In short, Regenerative agriculture is a rotative production working in harmony with the environment.
We achieved balance in the production process by combining all these practices to improve soil restoration, capacity, water retention, nutrient availability, and diversity of microorganisms. Overall creating the perfect environment for top-quality sustainable harvest.
