Death knell?

Written by  The Hound

This old mutt wonders why regenerative agriculture advocates seem to be good at promotion and hype, but not so good at providing good, scientific research to back their claims.

Your old mate thought that the demise of ‘regen ag’ was the endorsement by the $2 million white elephant known as the Primary Sector Council, whose ‘big plan’ was for NZ agriculture to be “a world-leader in modern regenerative production systems”.

However, surely the downfall of the regen ag fad will be hastened following anti-farming, multi-national, tax-dodger Greenpeace coming out in support of the practice.

In fact, these whackos are so in love with the idea of regenerative agriculture that they want the Government to spend $1 billion converting every farmer in NZ to the practice.

As a mate of the Hound says: If Greenpeace thinks it’s a good idea, then it’s not!
