Abstract

The Tasmanian Institute of Agriculture will compare the regenerative way of farming compared to traditional methods in a three year study.

There is plenty of anecdotal evidence from farmers in Tasmania who have turned to using regenerative agriculture practises with great success.

Luke Radford spoke with Associate Professor Matthew Harrison from the Tasmanian Institute of Agriculture to find out more about the study.

And reporter Erin Cooper found one long time southern Tasmanian sheep farmer at Saltwater River who's now using regenerative farming on his property.
