InfestationFight for Food (Episode 1)

In Episode 1 – The Fight For Food, author Julian Cribb examines the infestations that are threatening our food supply. Attacking wheat, seed and pastures the Army Worm can be found from Africa to North America. Another global invader that is stressing citrus farmers is the Asian Citrus Psyllid. Biological control does not always go as planned, as proven with the introduction of the Cane Toad in Australia, while locusts are a major threat to the economic livelihood of farmers worldwide. Mice infestations occur on every continent and can eat up to a quarter of the world’s food every year. The destruction of farms and the dangers of disease are also caused by feral hogs and Texas suffers from the largest number of hogs in the world.
