Subject of the speech: “The role and place of Agriculture in the 21st century in the context of geopolitical changes in the world.”

Contemporary agriculture and its productive environment require modern, effective technical and technological solutions for the 21st century. The development of agriculture that we are observing is also the result of evolutionary social and economic changes taking place in rural areas. The agri-food sector will play an important role in shaping the countryside. It is characterized by ever closer integration of agriculture with its environment, ie with the industry producing means of production for agriculture, agri-food processing, as well as agricultural and food trade and other sectors of the national economy.

Agriculture in the 21st century must flexibly respond to the challenges posed to it. One of them is to find a balance between the implementation of technical, biological and organizational progress while maintaining the cultural heritage of villages and rural areas. During the lecture, we will try to answer the following questions together: how does agriculture look like on the world map in the era of geopolitical changes and what role does Polish agricultural production play in the European and world arena?
