Producing enough healthy food to feed a growing population whilst reducing the carbon footprint is a massive challenge for us to tackle.

Join agricultural systems and animal scientist Lisa Collins (University of Leeds) on a journey through time, from the windswept marshes of the past to the technology-filled skies of the future to consider what shape our agricultural landscape might take in 2051.
