East Anglia: Sustainable intensification of farming debate

The Centre for Contemporary Agriculture will be staging a farm level debate on ‘sustainable intensification’.

Among the issues under discussion will be the growing world population, global warming reducing the ability to produce food in many parts of the world, the scarcity of oil and dwindling potash reserves and how these will impact on the British farmer.

The debate, for farmers and industry experts, takes place on June 19 at the NIAB TAG facilities in Cambridge.

Among the speakers will be Professor Ian Crute, Chief Scientific Officer, AHDB, and Professor David Richardson, Professor of Microbial Biochemistry and pro-vice-chancellor at the University of East Anglia.
