As we approach the tri-annual world congress of IFOAM - Organics International, an organisation with which NASAA has always maintained strong connections, I am again drawn to the four IFOAM principles of organic agriculture, which are equally applicable to Genuine regenerative agriculture. They are: • Health: Organic agriculture should sustain and enhance the health of soil, plant, animal, human and planet as one and indivisible. • Ecology: Organic agriculture should be based on living ecological systems and cycles, work with them, emulate them and help sustain them.

• Fairness: Organic agriculture should build on relationships that ensure fairness with regard to the common environment and life opportunities. • Care: Organic agriculture should be managed in a precautionary and responsible manner to protect the health

and well-being of current and future generations and the environment.

These days, soil health is a major issue for agricultural extension, and while chemical fertilisers and pesticide use is still mainstream, the importance of organic matter is well recognised. TimMarshall, NASAA Organic Chair
