Wildfires increasingly threaten to destroy lives, property and the environment. Around 10% of all fires globally occur on agricultural land. New research has been published by a team from Lincoln University, looking at what crops are low in flammability and how we can use them to actually slow the spread of wildfires through some clever redesigning of our agricultural landscapes. We’re joined by one of the authors of this research, Dr Tim Curran is Associate Professor of Ecology at Lincoln University he joins Mark Leishman on Round Up.
