Future of Food Cuba
Posted by Byron Movement on 2014-02-23 19:10:49.0

George Alagiah heads out to Havana to find out how they are growing half of their fruit and vegetables right in the heart of the city, investigates the 'land-grabs' trend -- where rich countries lease or buy up the land used by poor farmers in Africa -- and meets the Indian agriculturalists who have almost trebled their yields over the course of a decade.

George finds out how we in this country are using cutting-edge science to extend the seasons recycle our food waste and even grow lettuce in fish tanks to guarantee the food on our plates.

He hears the arguments about genetically modified food and examines even more futuristic schemes to get the food on to our plates.
