Regenerative Agriculture - REAG01

Conventional, intensive agricultural approaches have left in their wake a growing number of serious environmental issues, degrading soils and reducing landscape water holding capacity. Looking to the future of food production demands that we rethink our approach to farming systems.

Drawing on the University’s specialist expertise in plant science, agronomy, ecology, agroforestry, environmental chemistry and socio-ecological systems, this major delves into the emerging practices of, and growing evidence-base for regenerative agriculture, examining human ecology, agroecology, regenerative agronomy and soil management as well as the planning of rural landscapes.

The Bachelor of Science with a major in Regenerative Agriculture develops specialist knowledge in a whole-of-system approach to food production and farm management.
