Soil tillage has led to soil erosion at rates that threaten sustainable food supply. As a result, farming practices that work with nature are gaining momentum.  But for the whole value chain to embrace this challenge we need a dialogue based on good science, relevant metrics and consistent standards. 

REAP is looking at how today’s best practice is being enhanced by emerging agri-tech. Early adopters share their experiences from the field, regulators outline future strategy, and researchers and technologists provide insights into emerging agri-tech developments.
