Sustainable agriculture | Research Festival 2020

The future of food and farming, and its role in global climate change.

With rising populations and increase consumer demand on resources, the agriculture industry faces challenges from all sides to be productive, maximise profits, meet supply demands, while balancing the environmental impacts.

How can farming ensure food security, and become part of the climate change solution while benefiting the local economy?
