Producers of food? Suppliers of green energy and bio-based materials? Custodians of the countryside? Protectors of the planet? With demands increasing in all these areas REAP 2019 will explore how the concept of ‘One Agriculture’ (an integrated approach to harnessing innovations) could help farmers and growers fulfil these roles and also create profitable, productive and sustainable businesses. Agri-Tech East is inviting experts from different spheres and the next generation of industry leaders to show how agri-tech will enable farming to be part of the solution to grand challenges.
REAP Conference 2019 – Innovating towards One Agriculture
Innovating towards One Agriculture
Agri-Tech East is arguing that human health, animal health, ecosystems and food production are inextricably linked by best practice in farming.
Healthy soils can help mitigate or acerbate the impacts of climate change. The choice of crop and its cultivation can determine if food production becomes vulnerable or resilient to disease risk and extreme weather events.
So is “One Agriculture” the answer?
We think it might be.
