Craig Anderson
It seems like an insurmountable problem to feed the world’s growing population sustainably. However, political and economic/financial will aside, it is theoretically possible to feed 10 billion with the same or less land area using well-placed and carefully considered education, research and development. This presentation will meander through world population trends, promote a simple method to increase the food supply by at least 30%, and will take a stroll through the possibilities of regenerative agriculture.

There are real world solutions already developed and deployed to solve the crises of our time - clever farmers are already doing amazing things. Good things take time so what is our role? Craig is a scientist for the Cropping Systems and Environment group at Plant and Food Research (PFR) in Lincoln. He is passionate about environmental renewal and trying to decipher the microscopic foundations underlying earth’s ecosystems.
