Forum for the Future of Agriculture

At FFA 2010, we spoke to Bernard Graciet, Head of EU Corporate Affairs for Syngenta. He explains why he believes that in the short-term, the agricultural world needs to be more organised if it is to prevent another food crisis. He is, however, very hopeful that the world can feed a larger population in the future.

  1. I agree we need ‘to be more organized’ and I want to state the following. I do not see any possiblity of African countries being able to feed themselves only by being more organized. what is needed is a seismic shift in agricultural policies, and like south africa is doing, there may be only one choice available: acceptance of GM foods. it might not be the best thing to do for such a continent where most agriculture is still organic, but death by hunger is worse. I know the effects of famine because I come from Africa. at attempts are made to expose the obvious link between climate, famine, hunger, and of course productivity and economy.
    Good grounds for debate.
