Steven Savage, long-time agri-business consultant, is a specialist in agricultural biotechnology research and development. His projects have included studies of synthetic and natural chemicals, biological controls, biotechnology, environmental toxicology, information technology, patents, biofuels, and climate change.
In his Food for Thought lecture, Steve discusses a surprising combination of traditional and biotechnological options for agriculture — the goal being both sufficient production for a burgeoning world population, and reductions in energy consumption and green house gas emissions.
