In this episode, we are discussing food security – and the need to balance profitable food production with care for the environment.
Agriculture faces a defining decade – with farmers expected to do much more than simply produce safe, affordable and nutritious food.
Growers and livestock producers are increasingly required to provide environmental benefits too – as well as helping to mitigate climate change.
Discussing ways we can get this balance right are three special guests:
- Carl Atkin, chairman of the Institute of Agricultural Management
- Emily Norton, head of rural research at Savills
- Phil Jarvis, chairman of farming and the environment at Albanwise Farming
The Farmers Weekly Transition project is working to secure a more sustainable future for UK farm businesses.
