“Profit was positively correlated with the particulate organic matter of the soil, not yield”.

That’s a conclusion reached in a study on regenerative agriculture practices in the United States, passed on to me from Max Purnell, a dairy farmer from Hauraki. Max has an insatiable appetite for knowledge about regenerative agriculture, and specifically carbon sequestration, and as a practicing dairy farmer has his feet firmly on the ground.

In this video from Rural Delivery, Max talks about what he is learning from his farm.
