Abstract

  • There is no published work detailing the economics of regenerative agriculture in Western Australia.
  • Of the work completed in other jurisdictions and nations captured in this review, the profitability of regenerative agriculture compared with conventional agriculture was variable, although generally lower.
  • The loss of income associated with the transition from conventional agriculture to regenerative agriculture is a significant barrier to adoption, although it is enterprise-sensitive.
  • Farmers who are operating regenerative agriculture systems self-report higher levels of wellbeing.
  • Conventional agriculture and regenerative agriculture are overlapping approaches.
  • The literature presented in this review is mostly based on small samples, case studies or models. There are hazards in extrapolating this information to represent regenerative agriculture performance more generally.
