Outdoor, climate-dependent agriculture is proving increasingly challenging in countries across the globe, including India. Western Sydney University crop scientists from the National Vegetable Protected Cropping Centre at WSU’s Hawkesbury Institute for the Environment (HIE) are working with the Indian Council of Agricultural Research (ICAR) and with local ‘agri-entrepreneurs’ to advance India’s efforts to feed its growing population sustainably into the future.
This short film, produced for Western Sydney University by BBC StoryWorks, talks about the collaboration between HIE’s protected cropping experts and researchers and agri-entrepreneurs across India to develop sustainable future food production solutions for India and, potentially, the world.
For more information about WSU’s work in protected cropping solutions, visit the HIE website.
