We're facing future extremes - population size, weather events, temperature rises - and with them potential agricultural crises. How can we secure our food supply in a changing world? Are there lessons to be learnt from the past? Join our panel of experts who will look at historical and present-day examples of how societies deal with agricultural crises, and try to answer your questions about the future.
