The theme for the 2019 Congress is Growing Agriculture @ 41 Degrees South – Excellence in farm management through innovation, diversification and integration with tourism.
The demand for food is increasing; we will need to increase food production by 70% by 2050. For some economies that depend strongly on agriculture, like Tasmania, there are attractive export opportunities for the supply of high quality and “quality assured” produce. What needs to happen for these opportunities to be realised?
The Congress will devote a number of sessions to presentations, discussions and workshops to examine what Governments, educators, researchers, consultants, farmers and commercial companies will need to do to capitalise on these opportunities.
