Regenerative agriculture is a conservation and rehabilitation approach to food and farming systems. It focuses on topsoil regeneration, increasing biodiversity, improving the water cycle, enhancing ecosystem services, supporting biosequestration, increasing resilience to climate change, and strengthening the health and vitality of farm soil. Simply put, practices like no tillage are table stakes to rehabilitating the soil; more is required.
The SMART Seeder technology allows producers to not only reduce emissions and sequester additional carbon dioxide, but it allows unprecedented flexibility in seeding crops not just in a monoculture environment but allows simple, effective, and unparalleled abilities to do intercropping, multi-cropping and cover cropping all in a single pass. Each row and each opener puts down its own seed, fertility and soil amendments and can be varied row by row to put 2, 3, 4 or more crops at the same time into a field in a single pass. This allows legumes and pulse crops that naturally fix nitrogen in the soil to reduce the application of synthetic fertilizers as well as applying soil amendments to reduce acidic soils and pH levels.

Grown to improve the soil and build natural fertilizer and nitrogen for healthy soil. They also act as mulch or biomass to improve soil properties, attract beneficial insects and pollinators.
The overuse of fertilizers and products added to crops destroy biodiversity, create unnecessary CO2 emissions, and pollute waterways due to runoff. The SMART Seeder MAX has six different product placements that are precise to the plant’s specific needs.
Seeding process with minimal disturbance to the soil, preventing erosion, increases infiltration, less CO2 emissions, and water runoff of essential nutrients and products, resulting in higher crop yields.
Seeded with the main crop and grown to improve the soil while building natural fertilizer and nitrogen for healthy roots. It can also be harvested, or act as mulch or biomass to improve soil properties, attract beneficial insects and pollinators.
