With the global population projected to swell to nearly 10 billion by 2050, the big question is: how are we going to feed everybody?

They’ll explore cultural attitudes about technology & its use on today’s farms, considering how science & innovation can make farming sustainable & the food we eat better for people, animals & the planet.
