In this series, Jimmy Doherty sets out to discover how the world's farmers are going to keep us fed in the future. Demand for food is expected to double within the next 40 years. Yet we can only grow food on four per cent of the earth's surface - and the climate is changing and resources like water and fuel are under threat.
From the new farming frontier of Brazil, to the parched wheat-belt of Australia; from the hi-tech mega-farms of America, to the subsistence plots of Africa, Jimmy wants to meet the men and women who believe they can find new techniques and new technologies to help meet these challenges.
Along the way he reveals the sometimes uncomfortable truths about what it may take to keep providing the food that people expect. But his journey also reveals the remarkable achievements and inspiring stories of the farmers who are committed to getting the best from the planet’s resources.
