Podcast: The Thrill of The Hill – Research & Policy

Research and development within Scottish agriculture will be key to a successful green recovery, building an efficient and sustainable rural economy and mitigating against the threats posed by climate change. In this special bonus episode of the Thrill of the Hill series Alex Pirie is fortunate to chat with Prof Davy McCracken, Head of the Hill & Mountain Research Centre about innovations in agriculture, as specifically the uplands.  Topics include driving efficiency and better grazing in the uplands, balancing conservation and climate concerns, high nature value farming, threats of climate change and what the green recovery and future policy could look like and could target.
