Why Regenerative Agriculture?

We are at a nexus and a time of choice in agriculture. How will we feed an ever more populated world, where extreme weather events increasingly seem the norm, and where food systems are precarious, even fragile? The contemporary systems that underpin our agriculture are showing their cracks. Farmers aspire to produce nourishing food, and markets increasingly demand it, but practices that are unsustainable contradict right stewardship and the preservation of farmland essential to future generations. Everything is at stake.

AEA provides expert guidance, tools, and resources to growers who desire to cultivate crops that are more resilient, productive, and profitable. AEA has the most knowledgeable, trained, and informed agronomy team in the regenerative space. We provide expert guidance, tools, and data-based resources to growers who desire to cultivate crops that are more resilient, more productive, and more profitable. We want to turn agriculture into a true force for good, benefitting not only our environment but the very livelihoods of those who depend on it. It is time to invest in a viable, resilient future of agriculture. Join us as we shape the future of farming – one field at a time.

A Message From All of Us at AEA

Hi Friends,

The why behind regeneration is the key.

Regeneration means looking beyond revitalizing soil health. It is about fundamentally regenerating landscapes at all levels. It is about the relationships woven between soil biology and plants, between livestock and the landscape, and between farmers and consumers. In this moment, we desire to regenerate the relationships with our supporters and weave them along the warp and weft of our team and our customers to create something deeply collaborative, symbiotic, and synergistic, rather than the transactional and extractive relationships so prevalent in contemporary agribusiness.

Today, we have the opportunity to create this change, to revitalize rural communities, our food systems, and the very fabric of how we relate to make these vital changes for all of us and for our planet.

It would be an honor to have you join us in realizing this vision of a regenerative and resilient future.

Frequently Asked Questions

  • What is AEA’s approach to regenerative plant nutrition?

    Through plant sap analysis data and other cutting-edge analytics, we know that crops experience significant nutritional imbalances limiting their capacity for photosynthesis. Once these nutritional imbalances are corrected, yields and pest resistance immediately increase along with the efficiency of photosynthetic activity, drastically reducing the need for fertilizers and pesticides.

    To address these plant imbalances, AEA manufactures and sells a range of regenerative agriculture plant nutrition products that are also compliant with organically certified farming. These tools – derived from naturally occurring microorganisms, plant extracts, and humic substances – include biological and nutritional products, microbial fungal inoculants, and liquid micronutrients and macronutrients.

  • How does the AEA Farm Services team help growers to bring regenerative methods to their operations?

    Our diverse, passionate team has demonstrable expertise in myriad crop types and regions. We analyze the greatest limiting factors to grower success and create a collaborative plan with the grower to address them. We provide ongoing support and coaching to farmers through in-field visits and remote consultation that result in making timely nutrient and practices recommendations throughout the growing season that are based on in-field observations, sap analysis data, and other agronomic testing results.

  • What results can AEA’s products and methods bring to regenerative growers?

    We strive for increases in crop yield and quality, a reduction or elimination of the need for pesticides and fertilizers, and increased profitability.

  • How does AEA bring thought leadership to the regenerative agriculture space?

    AEA creates and distributes educational content to support the growth of the regenerative agriculture movement, including regional field days and events, ongoing webinars led by John Kempf and other AEA agronomy advisors, and the top-rated Regenerative Agriculture Podcast.
