Regenerative Agriculture Market Overview

Regenerative agriculture combines a set of agricultural practices whose main objective is to enhance soil quality naturally. Regenerative agriculture also refers to restoring the fertility of exhausted or diseased soils. The global regenerative agriculture market is majorly driven by the growing uptake of regenerative agricultural practices, and rising awareness regarding environmental impacts of conventional farming techniques. Regenerative agriculture has emerged as a sustainable alternative that prioritizes biodiversity, soil health, and ecosystem resilience. The regenerative agriculture market tends to have a lucrative opportunity owing to the increasing demand for sustainable food production systems.

In December 2022, the Rockefeller Foundation announced a grant of $11 million for respective organizations that promote Indigenous as well as regenerative agriculture. Several trends driving the regenerative agriculture market growth include corporate funding for regenerative farming practices, rising consumer requirement for sustainable and healthy food, technological advancements, and government incentives & policies. Increased knowledge-sharing initiatives and collaboration among stakeholders in the regenerative agriculture domain propel the adoption of regenerative techniques and promote sustainable agriculture practices across the globe.

In March 2023, PepsiCo announced an investment of $216 million in long-term strategic partnership agreements with 3 of the well-known farmer-facing organizations – Soil and Water Outcomes Fund (SWOF), Practical Farmers of Iowa (PFI), and the IL Corn Growers Association (ICGA). These long-term strategic partnership agreements are aimed at driving the adoption of regenerative agriculture practices across the US.

Unilever, General Mills, Nestle, and PepsiCo pledged notable support for regenerative agriculture practices, which involve the avoidance of synthetic pesticides and fertilizers. As of September 2022, out of 900 million arable acres in the United States, around 1.5% is farmed regeneratively. Thus, there exists a vast scope for regenerative agriculture in the US. As per a new report, Soil Wealth, investments in regenerative agriculture-related projects are surprisingly high. As of July 2019, the report suggested that were around 70 investment strategies with assets under management of more than $47.5 billion across the United States.

A meta-review conducted by the Consultative Group on International Agricultural Research (CGIAR) in 2021 concluded that by maintaining biodiversity in agricultural lands, regenerative agriculture practices are able to create additional critical ecosystem services.

In order to enhance various regenerative agriculture techniques, respective companies can consider collaborations, partnerships, acquisitions & mergers, and joint ventures. Furthermore, continuously evolving regenerative agricultural technology can make the existing agricultural technology obsolete very soon. This may intensify the competition among the crucial market players in the coming years.

Since the count of regenerative agriculture solution providers (suppliers) is less in comparison to the count of buyers, the bargaining power of suppliers is relatively high as compared to the bargaining power of buyers. Due to promising profit margins, the threat of new entrants in the regenerative agriculture market is moderate as of now.

Our regenerative agriculture market report includes an in-depth analysis of the current market situation. This report covers crucial key factors such as the competitive landscape, the latest trends, regional analysis, and key players. The analytical research on the impact of the pandemic of COVID-19 helps in realizing the effects on the demand and supply side. The segmental analysis offers a distinct view of particular practices involved in regenerative agriculture.

COVID-19 Impact:

The sudden outbreak of COVID-19 affected the supply of ingredients required for regenerative agriculture. The production of soil fertilizers was impacted negatively across the globe. Logistical restrictions became a crucial concern for regenerative agriculture material producers. Many of the ecosystem stakeholders, particularly small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) had to stop or curtail their production. Since transportation was majorly impacted in various countries of the world, the export of numerous regenerative agriculture products was severely impacted.

The pandemic of COVID-19 disrupted various activities in the agriculture domain and the supply chain. Initial findings indicated that harvesting activities were suspended owing to a lack of migrant workers. The pandemic resulted in direct as well as indirect impacts on agriculture, soil, and the environment. The Pradhan Mantri Garib Kalyan Yojana / Package worth ₹ 1.70 lakh crore ($22.59 billion) proved to be a comprehensive relief package for the poor to fight against Corona Virus. In February 2021, the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) accepted €40 million ($48.18 million) help from Germany. This help was intended to help fishers and farmers deal with the ill effects of COVID-19 as well as extreme climate events.

Practice Insights:

Based on practice, the global regenerative agriculture market is segmented into agroecology, aquaculture, biochar & terra preta, agroforestry, no-till & pasture cropping, holistically managed grazing, silvopasture, and other practices. The agroforestry segment held the highest market share in 2022. The aquaculture segment is expected to hold a significant market share during the forecast period.

Regenerative agroforestry, a sustainable and resilient agricultural practice is considered to have the potential to deal with the climate issue. Regenerative agroforestry enhances food security for the rising population while reducing climate change, enabling economically viable production, and safeguarding biodiversity. This method is a nature-based and cost-effective practice that can be adopted across various parts of the world.

Application Insights:

Based on application, the global regenerative agriculture market is segmented into soil & crop management, biodiversity, operations management, and other applications. The biodiversity segment had the highest revenue share in 2022. The biodiversity segment is expected to dominate the market during the study period.

Numerous regenerative agricultural practices such as planting cover crops, no-tillage, and planting buffer strips help in enhancing biodiversity. A few other advantages of biodiversity include a clean and safe water supply, nutrient recovery, protection of the soil, the provision of fertilizer, and a greater variety of wildlife.

Regional Insights:

The regenerative agriculture market is spread across North America, Europe, Asia Pacific (APAC), the Middle East and Africa, and Latin America. In 2022, the North American region held the largest revenue share in the regenerative agriculture market. In 2022, the United States held the highest share followed by Canada and Mexico in North America. North America is one of the most developed continents owing to the presence of countries with favorable agriculture policies and an inclination towards regenerative agriculture.

Grupo Bimbo and CIMMYT partnership has planned to enhance regenerative agricultural practices for maize and wheat in Mexico. Grupo Bimbo has set a goal that 200,000 hectares of wheat should be cultivated with regenerative agriculture practices by 2030. Grupo Bimbo also aims that 100% of key wheat ingredients must be produced with regenerative agriculture solutions by 2050.
