Regenerative Agriculture in the Textile Supply Chain

May 1 @ 1:00 am - 2:00 pm UTC

Regenerative agriculture holds the promise of minimizing the damage caused by agricultural production of cotton, wool, and other natural fibers. Applicable to organic and conventional production systems, regenerative agriculture includes any agricultural practice that increases soil organic matter from baseline levels over time.  It includes techniques such as cover cropping, no-till, and crop rotation.  These practices tend to generate multiple benefits including improving soil health, increasing soil water holding capacity, reducing pest pressure, and sequestering carbon.

Textile and apparel companies seeking to drive these practices into their supply chains need to understand both the on-farm practices and the practical realities of how to drive change in commodity production systems.
