Increased yields/stocking rates:
Adoption of regenerative practices enhancing necessary soil biology and fertility, and leading to increased production/biomass.
Reduced input costs:
Better soil fertility, soil testing, and management decisions leading to reduced input and irrigation needs/costs.
Reduced economic impact from weather events:
Reduced susceptibility to flooding, drought, fire, and other shocks.
Increased incomes/prosperity and wellbeing of BIPOC farmers:
An overall increase in the prosperity of BIPOC farming & rural communities.
Diversification: Farmers diversifying revenue streams with integration of livestock and specialty crops.
Restored domestic markets:
Increased sales of US crops and pasture-based livestock in regional and US markets.
Increased competition/reduced economic consolidation:
Increased supply chain resilience and processing capacity, market access for new and innovative companies, increased market transparency, limited market consolidation and limited land purchasing consolidation to make more farmland available to beginning and socially-disadvantaged farmers and resident operators.
Agricultural finance and insurance incentivize resilient soil health practices and systems:
Widespread access to flexible financing and crop insurance that reflect the reduced risk of regenerative practices and support investments in soil health/a regenerative operation.
