New ‘Green Revolution’ in partnership with nature

The time has come for a new ‘Green Revolution’ in which the ways we currently produce food are revised and changed. So says our Corporate Marketing Director, Peter Maes, in a televised studio debate with The Daily Telegraph’s business reporter, Alastair Greener.

‘In order to feed the projected 9 billion people by 2050, we will need to produce more food with less input while maintaining and protecting natural resources. This is where biological and sustainable crop protection solutions can play a vital role,’ said Peter Maes during the debate on food security. The British newspaper and its online televised debates daily feature prominent speakers on a range of topical issues in its ‘Business Reporter’ section.

During the London studio debate, Peter Maes said many biological solutions for agricultural pests and diseases were already available and merely needed to be implemented. ‘In this, politicians and legislators have an extremely big responsibility to ensure that they create a framework in which sustainable solutions can be implemented at an accelerated pace. Public opinion holds the key to this issue. The power to influence change increasingly lies with civil society and consumers themselves,’ he declared.

‘Sustainable and ecologically responsible agriculture has a direct impact on all our lives and the planet,’ said Peter Maes. ‘Last year, we adopted the tagline: ‘Partners with Nature’- Koppert Biological Solutions aims to make cultivation healthier, safer and more productive now and in the future. We can’t do this on our own, and it will involve partnership with other parties in the chain.’
