Posted by on January 11th, 2018 | 0 Comments »

Dr. Margaret Zeigler, Executive Director of the Global Harvest Initiative, was interviewed for the UnCanned podcast on how to feed a growing world.

UnCanned is a paid podcast produced by Slate Studios in partnership with Campbell Soup Company. Host Dana Bialek gets to know the people who are rethinking how we grow, produce, and consume quality food.

This episode features the story of Becky and Melissa on the Joe Yeung Farm in Sacramento, young farmers who are experimenting with new innovations to overcome agricultural challenges and produce the high quality ingredients that go into brands like Campbell.

Margaret describes how agricultural innovations and technologies improve productivity and help meet growing global demand in a way that is environmentally sustainable.

You can learn more about the relationship between agricultural productivity and sustainability in the 2017 Global Agricultural Productivity Report® (GAP Report®): A World of Productive Sustainable Agriculture.
