Specialist provider of advisory & consultancy services to
agriculture and other natural resource-based industries

Welcome to PG Economics

PG Economics Limited is a specialist provider of advisory and consultancy services to agriculture and sectors that both service/supply agriculture and use agricultural raw materials. Our specific areas of specialisation are new technology use in agriculture (eg, plant biotechnology, new breeding techniques), agricultural production systems, agricultural markets, policy, regulation and trade agreements.

The Earth’s population is expected to grow to 9.7 billion over the next 33 years, and that’s a huge exponential growth rate. We only hit our first billion total in 1800. All in all, it adds up to a lot of mouths to feed, especially when you consider the vast hunger issues that certain parts of the world face today. How can this be done both sustainably and reliably without destroying our planet? Do we ‘simply’ need to produce more food? Or is it more important to sort out distribution networks, develop new technological solutions to keeping food fresh, and cut down on waste? Denis Murphy is Professor of biotechnology at University of South Wales, Helen Woodfield is a lecturer at Cardiff University's School of Biosciences and Graham Brookes is an agricultural economist. Chaired by Jonathon Harrington.
