The benefits that geothermal energy bring to agriculture are the focus of a new report recently released by the UN's Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO).

Geothermal energy is the constant flow of heat energy radiating from the earth's core.

FAO highlights that if this energy is harnessed, it can provide unique opportunities for cheaper, sustainable food production and processing in developing countries.

Sandra Ferrari spoke with Divine Njie, the Deputy Director of FAO's Rural Infrastructure and Agro-Industries Division; she began by asking him how geothermal energy can assist agriculture sectors.
