The Silent Time Bomb on Your Plate

I have to confess that what I know about farming could be written on a gnats arse with a six inch nail. That taken as a given this doco appealed to me simply because it looks at a serious problem from a different perspective.

  1. I hope a lot of people watch and read this. It continues to amaze me how the society ignores this problem and continues to buy their cheap low quality food without a thought about what goes in (and why), and what the consequences are.

  2. The area where we farm is supposed to be ‘Australia’s next Food Bowl’ because there is so much water up here.
    Reality is, that we have huge pest & disease problems, farmers can’t make a living of their land anymore and over 60% of the farmable area is being leased out to Tree Plantations. We have seen crops after crops disappear, because they simply can’t be grown anymore, not even with more fertiliser or more chemicals.
    There are are a couple of growers up here that noticed the decline years ago and changed their farming methods. Very few are living of that once in a blue moon good income year, where their low yields and low quality crops fetch big money, because there was a disaster somewhere else and supply is low. Most have leased out their farms(makes far better income that growing a crop the conventional way.)
    There is more land being developed as we speak.
    Australia’s next Food Bowl? Not unless something changes …
