THE COLLECTIVE GOAL OF REGENERATIVE AGRICULTURE

Online conference

GÉRARD BERTRAND · JOHAN REYNEKE· MIGUEL TORRES

Regenerative agriculture encourages biodiversity and contributes to healthy soils which in return, can facilitate the soil’s capacity to sequester CO2. The wine industry could play a very powerful role in agriculture if all producers were inspired to work towards this collective goal. Together, we can set new standards for a more sustainable industry.
