Learn about the bio-geography of crops, and the importance of geographical climate, soil and water resources.
The science of GMOs, energy crops, and food growing techniques such as permaculture, forest gardening, organic agriculture and conventional agriculture will be examined, including their impact on green-house gas emission, carbon sequestration, soil health, biodiversity and ecosystem services.

We will also focus on key scientific advances, debates and uncertainties in the science of sustainable food production and will examine data to draw conclusions.

Your week will include a series of lectures, supported by interactive seminars and practical activities. Lectures will draw on a wide variety of theoretical and applied topics with a wide use of case studies throughout.
