Food Costs, Satellite Data, and Diversity within Species

Russ Roberts talks with Tomar Haspel about food costs, animal welfare, and modern agriculure on EconTalk.

A couple great discussions regarding the future ag macro environment and satellite based crop data in finance.

More on the myth of monoculture - biodiversity within species in Nature.

"the health of an ecosystem may depend not only on the number of species present, but also on the diversity of their traits. …Equally important to keeping an ecosystem healthy and resilient are the species' different characteristics and the things they can do — measured in terms of specific traits such as body size or branch length."
