Join us for this enlightening episode of the Conversations on Climate podcast as we delve into the intricate relationship between climate change, food production, and sustainable farming practices.

In this episode, we are honoured to have Kelly Price, an AgriTech entrepreneur with a diverse background ranging from biology and cancer research to tackling food waste, share her insights on the pressing issues facing our planet and our plates. Kelly challenges us to adopt the curiosity of a three-year-old and question why the true cost of food production, especially those contributing to the destruction of vital ecosystems like the Amazon, is not reflected in our food prices.

She highlights the invisible link between healthy planets and healthy people, emphasising the detrimental effects of nitrogen and pesticides on our waterways and the urgent need for a shift towards sustainable farming practices. Discover why many farmers, despite their deep connection to the land, find themselves trapped in a cycle of using harmful chemicals to ensure crop yield, driven by economic pressures and a system that favours short-term gains over long-term sustainability. Kelly also sheds light on the innovative solutions being developed by her company, Agreed Earth, which aims to reduce nitrogen loss through satellite data, offering a beacon of hope for aligning economic incentives with environmental stewardship.

This episode is a must-listen for anyone interested in understanding the complex dynamics of food production, the impact of agriculture on climate change, and the potential for technology and traditional farming practices to coexist and lead us towards a more sustainable and resilient food system. Whether you’re a concerned citizen, a farmer looking for sustainable practices, or someone interested in the intersection of technology and agriculture, this conversation offers valuable insights and a call to action to rethink our approach to food and farming for the sake of our planet and future generations.
