Farm to Table
Talk is a podcast which “explores issues and the growing interest in the
story of how and where the food on our tables is produced, processed and
marketed.” In this episode, Prabhu
Pingali (TCI Director) and Maureen Valentine (Tata-Cornell Scholar) are
interviewed about the changing food system in India.
Improving food systems is a high priority all over the world.
This Farm to Table Talk is about changes that are taking place in India with
the help of Cornell University’s Tata-Cornell Institute for Agriculture and
Nutrition. Established with a generous gift from the Tata Trust, the Institute
is a long-term research initiative focused on solving problems of poverty,
malnutrition and rural development in India. Our conversation with the founder
and Director, Dr. Prabhu Pingali and Tata-Cornell PhD scholar Maureen Valentine
covers the gamut from the Green Revolution to improving crop systems, raising
goats, and nutritional gender issues in rural India. We learn what they are
doing in India, what is changing because of their work, and what we can learn
from the efforts to change food systems around the world.
