Nuffield Scholar report

Check out this Nuffield report on “The future of the Family farm in a marginal area” 

http://www.nuffieldinternational.org/rep_pdf/1330389329Craig-Duffield-2011-report.pdf

Craig Duffield travelled to “Palliser’s Triangle” in Canada which is a semi-arid area in Canada which had also historically been deemed “inappropriate” to farm. This area now is extremely productive. The Semi-Arid Prairie Research Centre (SPARC) is based in the centre of this zone and their extensive research has directly improved agriculture for region.

It will be good to have Craig’s insights as John Martin and I travelling through this area.
