Evan Fraser is a food systems innovation expert, the Director of the Arrell Food Institute at the University of Guelph in Canada, and the Founder of Feeding9Billion.

Though he didn't grow up on a farm, he brings a multi-disciplinary and systems approach to his work, with degrees and work experience in various fields from anthropology to atmospheric chemistry to agriculture. His passion for agriculture comes from his love of good food and summers spent spent working on his grandfather’s farm (more on that in the episode).

In this episode, Evan and I cover two main topics:
  1. Three big barriers to agtech adoption, and what’s being done to overcome them; and
  2. The impact of COVID-19 on agricultural supply chains.

Thanks to Connie Bowen for suggesting Evan. We're always open to suggestions and feedback from our listeners!
