The Center for Regenerative Agriculture at University of Missouri provides a collaborative home for research, education, and extension work. The work spans state-level, regional, and national projects and includes partners from many different organizations. Specific activities for the Center include serving as an information resource for diverse audiences, organizing and hosting educational field days, webinars, workshops, and conferences, and fostering interdisciplinary research on regenerative approaches. Key goals include building more integrated approaches to regenerative farming and developing food systems that are more resilient.
