How can plant breeding help to feed the world?

Learn how science and technology are essential to preventing the loss of the crops which are key to our everyday lives.


Did you know that we acquire 70% of our calories from just three crops? And that these are at risk from pests and diseases? Jonathan Harrington,
of CropGen, will introduce you to the topic of how the world feeds itself and how we need to improve the way we grow and distribute our crops. Learn how science and technology are essential to preventing the loss of these crops which are key to our everyday lives. Professor Denis Murphy will explore plant breeding and deal with some of the various problems that threaten world food production including climate change, droughts, salt Pollution, aluminum poisoning, pests and diseases, and weeds.
