. Regenerative Agriculture - Why the need?  
.
.
. Nature is extremely complex and, put simply, knows more than a million Einsteins. Unfortunately, man has this irresistible desire to control, so instead of working with the genius of nature, he has chosen to try and control her. Short term, this worked very well but now its backfiring in the form of desertification, climate change, superbugs and rampant disease. To continue along this path is not only unsustainable, but, is prohibitively expensive. Survival is dependent on new approaches which regenerate what we have destroyed, enabling us to to produce healthier food at a lower cost.

.  
. At RAS, our prime focus is marketing products and practices which re-ignite natural biological synergies and diversity. Our understanding of nature has increased exponentially in recent times, enabling the development of hardy biological products which make this regeneration possible in just a few seasons. Overuse of chemicals has created superbugs, making us increasingly dependent on expensive chemicals. This is simply not sustainable. To survive, farmers must act NOW. The longer you wait the further down the hole you find yourself. While the transformation may take a few seasons, savings are seen from season one. Farmers who adopted the regenerative approach years ago, are the ones smiling all the way to the bank.

. We have access to a range of products and practices which help the farmer achieve this:  
.  
. Beneficial Microbes, inoculants and humates  
.  
. Biological activators  
.  
.

Fermentation products

 
.  
.

Seaweed extracts

.

Seed Dressings

 
.  
. Creation of biological reefs in the soil  
.  
. Bio-catalysts to accelerate biological activity by breaking down biological toxins  
.  
. Carbo-chelated nutrients  
.  
  . Cover Crops  
  .  
  . Livestock Management  
  .  
  . We source products from leading manufacturers, both local and international, and have access to people who are experts in their field.  
  .  
  .  
  . In regenerative agriculture there is no one silver bullet, but rather a range of products which act synergistically with each other to help us achieve our goals.

  . Selecting Products and Practices  
  .  
  .  
  . We need to create an environment conducive to optimal biological activity  
  .  
  . Nature is extremely complex. Fortunately, when you work with nature, she takes care of the complicated stuff, making your job much easier. Having the courage to WEAN yourself off chemicals is the most difficult step. To move directly into a fully biological approach can be hazardous as we must first re-establish essential organisms and balances.  
  .  
  .  
  .  
  .  
  . This requires adopting principles that work synergistically with nature i.e. they must be:-  
  .  
  . Environmentally beneficial  
  .  
  . Economically viable  
  .  
  . Simple  
  .  
  . Creating conditions which negate the need for agrochemicals  
  .  
  . Biological Reefs to optimise soil biology  
  .  
  . Refuge for beneficial predatory insects and birds  
  .  
  . Creating synergy between organisms  
  .  
  . Optimise soil organic matter  
  .  
  . Products and practices which play key roles  
  .  
  . Beneficial Microbes  
  .  
  . Charged Biochar  
  .  
  . Fermentation Derivatives  
  .  
  . Biological Regulators and Activators  
  .  
  . Composts, Manures and Organic Fertilizers
