The Government is backing a research project on regenerative farming practices of arable and vegetable crops in Hawke’s Bay. Minister of Agriculture Damien O’Connor announced $2 million will be spent over six years on the New Zealand-first project. Led by Hawke’s Bay Future Farming Charitable Trust in partnership with LandWISE, the project aims to build evidence on the application and effectiveness of regenerative farming in arable and intensive field cropping.
