Many people across NZ are demanding hard data and science with regards to what we call regenerative agriculture, and in a NZ context.
Distinguished Professor Steve Wratten from Lincoln University talks about his career researching, documenting and teaching just that.
In this episode Steve talks about his extraordinary career as an agro ecologist.
From fascinating facts on the economic value of various ecosystem services, to Steve's thoughts on some of the challenges our agricultural sector faces with a business as usual approach.
I just love Steve's approach and the way he educates.
Using great analogies, humor and even song so the information really lands with her students.
Having supervised nearly 100 PhD students, and lectured thousands more
Steve has made a massive contribution to New Zealand agriculture and has impacted many peoples lives for the better.
He continues to do so from lecture halls to his office high up in the Burns building at Lincoln University.
Tune in for this wonderful conversation with an extraordinary man.
