The premise of regenerative farming is simple: everything a plant needs is already in the soil. In an ideal scenario, the process does not involve any cultivation of the fields, nor does it involve the use of plant protection or fertilisers. NEXAT gives growth the necessary “free space”.
The search for sustainable methods to improve soil biology, activate CO2-sequestration and promote biodiversity is at the top of everyone’s mind in farming these days. The main focus here is on regenerative farming, also known as carbon farming, which has been around for decades. All around the world, the food industry along with big corporations such as Microsoft and Google are investing billions into researching and promoting this natural method of farming. We seem to have only just realised that arable fields act as huge carbon sinks and consequently play a pivotal role in balancing out the CO2-emissions caused by humans.

As the first complete arable production system, NEXAT revolution provides a unique solution for implementing regenerative farming practices, while also setting new standards in profitability. NEXAT’s innovative wide-span technology combined with controlled traffic farming means that 95% of arable land never needs to be driven over or compacted again. This leads to the soil life becoming revitalised, generating optimum nutrient flows, long-term CO2-sequestration, high water infiltration and storage capacities. This minimises the risk of erosion and enables crops to withstand even longer periods of drought without any damage. What’s more, NEXAT is perfect for contour-farming with a range of different crops. The resulting biodiversity enables nutrients to be exchanged naturally in different directions, which encourages healthy growth of different plants. This also creates a natural protective barrier against pests and diseases.
