A great conversation with Richard all about our grains sector and the incredible challenges, changes, and opportunities on the horizon for grain producers and what they may be growing in the future as demand for plant-based and other protein continues to grow both here and for export.
Richard Heath is the Executive Director of the Australian Farm Institute (AFI) and he’s also a Director of the Grains Research and Development Corporation (GRDC).
Richard’s an experienced farmer, a passionate advocate of and for R&D and value-adding. He shares some amazing insights about the huge, positive impact R&D has had on grain producers over the past twenty years as they have had to contend with climate change and more severe droughts.
A great conversation that’s all about grains, current and future horizons, and how climate and other healthy, sustainable food drivers are together creating big challenges and opportunities for Australian grain producers and eaters.
And a whole lot more. It’s a great conversation that travels far and wide. Huge thanks Richard!
