OF&G have published a new policy paper this week setting out why organic can be the benchmark for advanced regenerative farming and how the organic movement, with its decades of experience, dedicated farmers, proven practices and markets is the vanguard of this change.
This new paper from Organic Farmers and Growers outlines how the organic sector’s legally binding production standards enshrine the best of regenerative agriculture’s principles. It also sets standards by which others can be judged and also has autonomy of oversight. It is that which is ultimately the test for integrity and veracity by which systems should be judged. It is this autonomy that safeguards our foodsystem.
Acknowledgement of this role is vital as new 'regen' and other labels come to be developed and marketed.
