Will Evans talks to Mark Buckingham, chair of the Agricultural Biotechnology Council, and who also works at Bayer, one of the world’s biggest agricultural technology and chemical companies.

We discussed GM and gene editing technology, its potential to improve crop production and reduce environmental impact, as well as lift people out of poverty in the developing world, and how the UK could take a giant step forward in this regard without the restrictive regulatory framework of the EU.

All this, and much more.
