Resilience is essential for the sustainability of our agricultural system. Crops must endure climatic variation, farms must remain viable businesses, and communities must remain empowered. Biodiverse farming can build this resilience across all production systems, including forestry, farming, grasslands, and aquaculture. This panel will demonstrate how farming techniques such as integrated pest management develop robust farming ecosystems that can yield bountiful harvests and hedge investment risks and how access to genetically diverse crops maintains social systems and food security.
