The Future Farm 2050 Project is based on UWA Farm Ridgefield. The Project's vision is to imagine the best-practice farm of 2050 and build and manage it now.
By 2050, we will have to feed and clothe 50% more people without destroying the planet. Business as usual will not be good enough.
It is a big problem and it is multidisciplinary. We are using crop science, livestock science, resource economics, architecture and landscape architecture, electronic engineering, solar energy, water management, animal and plant ecology.
The foundation is agriculture for food production based on a profitable mixed-enterprise farm, at the cutting edge of practical technology.
We are doing much more in our four pillars of activitiy:
The Future Farm 2050 Project is based on UWA Farm Ridgefiled, a 1600-hectare farm near Pingelly, Western Australia. We operate across the whole of Western Australia and link into international projects.
