RT HON Michael Gove MP is Secretary of State for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs of the United Kingdom

 

“With our temperate climate, fertile soils and world class talent pool – covering agronomy, science and technology – the UK is ideally positioned to increase yields and productivity to meet this challenge.

“We have the potential to take advantage of many technological advances – including vertical farming, machine learning, artificial intelligence and exploring the opportunities of gene editing.

"Harnessing these will help us consolidate our position as a major global food producer while also tackling issues such as agriculture emissions.”
