Professor Graeme Martin is the Head of the School of Animal Biology, UWA and Deputy Director of the UWA Institute of Agriculture, and Chair of UWA Future Farm 2050 Project.

His long-term goal is the development of clean, green and ethical systems of animal production.

UWA Future Farm 2050

The Vision: An ideal farm for 2050 – do it now.

Why 2050? That's when we will have to feed 50% more people without destroying the planet. There is no greater issue facing humanity.

The 'ideal' farm is profitable through the production of food and fibre, practices ‘clean, green and ethical’ management, and demonstrates the commitment to Australia’s biodiversity.

As a project, it will also make positive contributions to the local, state and national and international rural community.

UWA Future Farm also aims to strengthen links between food producers and city inhabitants, and between the university research community and the industry that it serves.

Talk to commence at 18:45.
