The Anti-Microbial Resistance (AMR) Crisis & What we Can do to Prevent it

Soil Tent

Anti-Microbial Resistance (AMR) is a systemic issue deeply ingrained in our food and farming system. We know that AMR is driven by consumption of antibiotics by humans and animals, but the issue is wider than this. Agrichemical inputs also play a role, and depletion of the soil is exacerbated by AMR. Antibiotics (and resistant bacteria) are in our water courses, soil, and the DNA of crops and feedstock. The current food and farming system is propagating this AMR crisis. In this session, we will discuss these issues, as well as asking what the regenerative agriculture movement can do to prevent them.
