What is Regenerative Agriculture?
Regenerative agriculture is a movement focused on reversing climate change, rebuilding soil and restoring soil biodiversity. The key to regenerative agriculture is that it not only does no harm to the land, but improves it. It’s a set of holistic practices that includes responsible food production and revitalizes local economies.
The Role of Structured Water In Regenerative Agriculture
Water, specifically structured water, has become a big part of the conversation in regenerative agriculture. Structured water improves the efficiency of irrigation systems and reduces water costs. In the same way, your hydration is more dependent on the quality of water you’re drinking vs. the quantity of water, farmers are discovering improved soil moisture levels and better soil health.
Not all water is created equal. It’s hard not to notice how healthy and vibrant plants seem even after a light rain. That’s because a source from nature is revitalizing the energy of those plants. Structured water emulates the composition of water in nature and is absorbed more easily by plant cells. Preliminary data from farmers using structured water shows that soil quality markers are improved and on average, water consumption is reduced by 30%.
Soil Health and Tilling
A farm can only be as healthy as its soil. Soil fertility has traditionally been assessed by the amount of minerals present and the addition of mineral fertilizers to make up for deficiencies. Now, there are more measures to evaluate soil holistically, with an understanding that there are microbial colonies that add to the diversity of the soil.
Generally, advocates of regenerative agriculture believe in no-till farming. Conventional tilling practices in farming, mostly used for elimination of weeds, disturb soil fungal communities and prevent microbial organisms from thriving. Intentional tillage restores soil only when it’s necessary allowing natural soil habitats to flourish. Healthy, well-established soil retains more water and is more efficient. Structured water further improves water utilization in plants.
Industrial Agriculture and Structured Water
Structured water devices that are specially designed for industrial purposes, can deliver high quality H3O2 to plants. H3O2 is sometimes called the 4th phase of water, beyond H2O, liquid, solid and vapor. It was discovered by Dr. Gerald Pollack at the University of Washington as the type of water that is found in the cells of your body and occurs naturally in fruits and vegetables. H3O2 allows for more efficient hydration of plants. Again, it’s more about the quality of water rather than the quantity. And all water is not equal.
