Feeding people well is as important as feeding people enough – producing safe, nutritious and sustainable food should be a priority, to ensure the health of humans, animals and the environment.
The theme for REAP 2019 is “Innovating Towards One Agriculture”, a vision for food production and ecosystem service delivery that builds on the “One Health” concept, pioneered by the World Health Organisation.
Experts from different spheres will explore how the agri-food system of the 21st Century will require a combination of new technologies, improved knowledge, enabling policies and regulations, as well as collaborative, innovative thinking.
Although agriculture-driven growth and food security are face major challenges – poor soil health is threatening yields, extreme weather events are increasing, water usage is becoming unsustainable – some of these threats can also be mitigated through innovative farming practice.
Agri-tech is a key enabler
Digital technologies have significant potential to improve efficiencies in water use, breeding technologies can increase nutritional value, new products that harness beneficial microorganisms can improve soil health and resilience in crops, precision in livestock rearing reduces methane production …..
Find out at REAP how a ”One Agriculture” approach can make farm businesses productive, profitable and sustainable.
