Determining the lowest impact ways to feed the growing world population with healthy food is an important question we face. Understanding the environmental impacts of different farming methods will help us make better choices. With increasing gas prices, intensive environmentally controlled agriculture has come under question. Should we shift food production to other regions or change our diets? Join us for a panel discussion with experts from academia and industry as they present and discuss the impact of our choice of food production methods and understand the scalability of different solutions.
