Lenders and Landowners Could Improve Soil Health and Land Value by Extending Their Financial Models to Match Natural Cycles

RCS - Introduction to ruminant nutrition
  • Regenerative agriculture can play a key role in rehabilitating the health of our soils, and a key role in sustainable farming and land management.
  • The current agricultural system mirrors how we consume food: quantity over quality. This means decreasing nutritional value of the food we eat in the service of profits. But, it is possible to be profitable while also supplying quality food.
  • Between the bank loan cycles and the land leases that many farmers have to farm their land, "the financial models drive a year-to-year perspective." This is incongruous with the biodynamic cycle required for proper soil health management of 5, 7, or even 10-years.
  • Lenders and land-owners should change their perspectives and cycles to match biodynamic and agronomic cycles in order to maximize the return on the asset: the land.
