- 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.
