The Farms of 2050

Tuesday 3rd September / presented by Rewi Lyall

The world’s population is on the rise.

It’s expected that we will have to feed and clothe 50% more people by 2050 without destroying the planet in the process (what, that can’t be right!)

The UWA institute of Agriculture is thinking ahead, aiming to build and manage the best-practice farm for the 2050 world, right now.

And to tell us about the cutting edge technology and practices and a field day where you can see the future for yourself is Winthrop Professor Graeme Martin, he’s the chair of UWA’s future farm 2050 and the deputy director of UWA institute of Agriculture.Play 2050 Farmland
