Regenerative Agriculture and IPM with Dr. Thomas Green


Integrated pest management, or IPM, is a system by which pests are controlled using informed decision-making techniques. Regenerative agriculture is an approach to farming that focuses on soil health and environmental recovery. In this episode, Tom Green finishes out our five part mini-series on IPM by walking us through how these two systems can work together to improve soil health, reduce pests, and help improve farmer profits.

Tune in to learn:

  • What are some of the main tenets of regenerative agriculture?
  • What are some of the obstacles regenerative ag researchers face?
  • How can regenerative ag boost natural pest control techniques?
  • Why are there both pros and cons to increased flexibility in applied techniques?
