Many no-till farms rely on herbicides to control weeds. But these chemicals are no match for superweeds. Will superweeds stop regenerative agriculture in its tracks? We're working on a solution.
The superweed Palmer Amaranth (also known as pigweed) is resistant to traditional herbicides. We're developing a better way to control them- without chemicals - and friendly to the planet.
Patagonia aims to source 100% regenerative cotton and hemp by 2030.
Let's produce ALL of our clothing regeneratively.
