The Fate of Food

In ‘The Fate of Food’, Amanda Little (professor of journalism and science writing at Vanderbilt University) takes us on a strange journey to the cutting edge of agricultural research.

“According to the facilitators, watching the videos on seed has stimulated them to start looking for local solutions to common problems that farmers face. It is by drawing on local knowledge that sustainable solutions can often be found at almost no cost. They did not say they are going to copy all what they saw, but they will apply the most essential.”

Louis Béavogui, IRAG, Guinea
