Feeding the nine billion-plus people expected to be living on our planet by 2050, from a land base that’s not expected to get any bigger, is the question posed to young “thought leaders” at this year’s Youth Ag-Summit.

Grainews and Country Guide field editor Lisa Guenther is in Canberra this week for the event, hosted by Bayer CropScience and Future Farmers Network (FFN), which follows up on the inaugural Youth Ag-Summit held in Calgary in 2013.

During the event, delegates are to connect with each other, listen to inspirational speakers, exchange ideas in breakout sessions, take part in farm field trips and pledge to help develop local solutions for local conditions in their home countries.

During Tuesday morning’s events, moderator Simon Pampena put the spotlight on Pu Hu, one of the event’s youth delegates, as shown in this video from Lisa.
