Richard Leask on regenerative agriculture in the wine industry
Welcome to this episode of Work Conversations, which sees CozWine & Baytech National Manager Ed Milne speak with Richard Leask, Managing Director at Leask Agri. A third generation farmer, Richard and his family own and operate 50 hectares of vineyards, two wine brands in South Australia and a vineyard management business.
After years of working in the industry, Richard found himself driven to understand the ways in which the country's agriculture and viticulture landscapes are being effected by climate change, and what measures could be implemented to create more sustainable farming practices.
The result of this, as Richard discusses, is his recently published report detailing how the process of regenerative agriculture shows enormous potential as a farming system to repair damage to soils and set them on a productive path for generations to come.
