Most farmers attempt to incorporate circular agriculture into the existing agricultural model, but there are also farmers who create alternative business practices and sales markets. This is revealed by a study conducted by Wageningen researchers Hans Dagevos and Carolien de Lauwere. They interviewed thirteen farmers who are committed to circular agriculture.
The current approach to circular farming is directed at efficient use of resources, healthy soils, cutting back losses and recycling waste streams. On the other hand, there are those farmers that choose an alternative strategy. They adjust their business plan by focusing on the quality of products and the environment rather than maximising production.
