While high-tech agriculture is one of the hallmarks of Western society, a growing number of Americans and Europeans believe that our farming methods are harmful on a number of levels. This program looks at the evolving debate over industrialized food production versus organic farming. Showing how and why farming techniques and policies have changed in the U.K. and similar countries over the last 50 years, the film then examines modern pesticides, herbicides, fertilizers, polytunnels, and biodomes, and discusses how intensive farming stacks up against organic and free-range farming. Perspectives from growers, food retailers, consumers, and agriculture experts are featured.
