Crop’s UK delivers high quality products and brilliant ideas across frozen vegetables, frozen fruit . As the name implies, regenerative agriculture rehabilitates soil, which is otherwise depleting at an alarming rate. I am assuming the UK soil is similar to that elsewhere. I think Hawken and Steyer get the figure of tons per 1% increase, a figure they quote on page of their book, from research done at the Rodale Institute in the USA.

When farmers begin growing switchgrass as an energy crop, they will use less fertilizer, pesticides and water. The neat thing about switchgrass is that as a perennial, farmers only have to plant it once. Scientists say switchgrass provides five times as much energy as it takes to grow, and it grows on marginal land not used for : John Perritano.   Half (51%) of those surveyed said they would consider growing their own fruit vegetables and herbs - or growing more - if food prices rose further. .
