TRANSCRIPTS: "The Soya bean crop is very important because it's a major world source of protein and oils. How this is a typical plant about 3' high, and here are the soya gains which contain about 40% protein and 20% edible oil. Now what is the future for this crop in the U.K? I think research will lead to new varieties which can be grown in the U.K. within the next 10 years. At present the crop is confined to the centre of France and latitudes about 48oN. One important potential use is for human consumption. The world demand for proteins in increasing and I think that quick development in this crop will alleviate that situation."
REPORTER: "Does this mean then perhaps in 10 years time everybody will by eating artificial meat made from soya beans?"
BERNARD SMITH: "Far from it - I think a lot of the increased production will go into will go into animal, livestock production and an increasing proportion will go towards human consumption."
