PIARN webinar - Sustainable intensification of agriculture: producing more with less

Event location: 
Thursday, November 10, 2011

Presented by Professor Tim Reeves and Associate Professor Richard Eckard, this webinar will  frame the challenge of creating a sustainably intensive of Australian agriculture industry, discussing the implications for food security, the research and development investment required and the sorts of transformations needed to put sustainable intensification into action.

Sustainable intensification means producing more food from less land, with less water and with less reliance on increasingly expensive inputs derived from fossil fuels – whilst simultaneously protecting and enhancing natural resources and ecosystems. Experts suggest it might be the only way to feed a rapidly growing world population without the environmental degradation typically associated with increasing agricultural production.
