023 Innovative Approaches of the Future Farm Project 2050

023 cover

Several weeks ago there was a request for Talking Biotech Podcast to interview Prof Graeme Martin.  Prof Martin has a long career in animal reproductive biology, and in recent times has had more focus on how to test new strategies in supporting livestock, crops and the nation’s resident biodiversity.  His “Clean, Green and Ethical” approach to animal production dovetails with novel strategies to sustainably raise crops in no-till systems as part of the Future Farm 2050 Project.  The discussion describes some simple, logical, low-cost techniques to increase crop production with less impact on the environment and in the context of minimal water resources.  This was a wonderful interview that jogs out-of-the-traditional thinking to address key issues in farm sustainability going forward.

  1. Thanks for this podcast. An objective highly knowledgeable scientist.
    It needs to be understood that dung beetles are affected by drugs (many are the same as insecticides used on crops) and by residues of insecticides applied to seed or soil or crop plants.
