364: British Agriculture – The Next Generation

Malcolm Stansfield is one of the wise men of agriculture with a huge range of experience from practical farming to academia and from UK to world farming. No one is better placed to give a sensible view of the future for farming. This paper has been constructed from his notes for the prestigious 2006 Shuttleworth Lecture.

Year of Publication2006
