Rock & Roll Farming

Jul 24, 2019

Tonight I talked to chair of the Agricultural Biotechnology Council, and corporate engagement lead for Bayer UK, Mark Buckingham. 

We discussed GM and gene editing technology, it's potential to vastly improve crop production and reduce environmental impact, as well as lift people out of poverty in the developing World, and how the UK could take a giant step forward in this regard without the restrictive regulatory framework of the EU. 

All this, and much more.
