Economics of Soil Health

This discussion was part of the National Center for Appropriate Technology’s second Soil Health Innovations Conference in March of 2022.

The panelists include:
Adam Chappell (Speaker) Chappell Brothers Farm LLC
Harry Greene (Speaker) Propagate, Chief Investment Officer
Rex Dufour (Moderator) NCAT, Western Regional Director

Propagate helps farmers, landowners, and service providers make regenerative agriculture work by balancing short-term income with long-term returns. Their platform, Overyield, makes it easy to access the operational know-how, implementation tools, financing and off-take agreements needed to reduce risk while integrating fruit, nut and timber trees with animal or crop farming systems.

By helping farmers focus on permanent crops in regenerative agriculture, a practice known as agroforestry, farmers become more resilient and investors earn great returns while building the next generation of regenerative farms.
