A report on the future of global agriculture finds demand slowing over the next decade as developing countries reach saturation. The Suffolk Trinity: red poll cattle, Suffolk punch horses and Suffolk sheep. These three farm animals embodied agricultural progress in years gone by, but their value today is still evident. Could they be part of a drive to identify an English brand? Scientists at Harper Adams University are developing the use of natural predators to control spider mites. Presented by Anna Hill and produced by Beatrice Fenton.
