How we manage, exploit and protect our land has always had fundamental implications for our civilisation. Might this also be true for our response to the climate problem? Can we really tackle climate change, enhance agricultural production, generate energy and lock carbon into our soils? If so, how? In the interval between Dr Lehmann’s lecture and the discussion between our panel of experts, Michael Inwood will demonstrate his innovative electric ute with which he pulls the Agroplow AD Hybrid disc drill.
