The first seminar of the Policy Foresight Programme 'The Futures of Agriculture', was held at the James Martin Institute on 9 June 2006. The seminar brought together members of government, industry, business, academia, and the media to consider options for the future of agricultural policy in the next 10, 25, and 50 years. Discussion centred on three main questions: * What is working and not working in current agricultural polices, both national and international? * What changes would we like to see in agricultural policy? * What should be done now and by whom?
