    What's stopping you from becoming regenerative/holistic?

    Hi, I've recently come across the concept of RegenAg/Holistic management and wondered why it's not more mainstream despite it's obvious benefits. What are some of the barriers that are preventing/prevented you from making the switch? What can be done to overcome them?
