The agri-food industry depends on soil, and soil degradation is a growing concern for all of us. But beyond the doom-and-gloom of environmental predictions, there is a growing movement of farmers and researchers that are fueled by optimism and seeing on-the-ground success with soil regeneration. In this discussion, Mel will outline the perspective from Ontario, who is doing what and how each part of the value chain can be a part of the soil solutions.
