The theme for the 2019 Congress is Growing Agriculture @ 41 Degrees South – Excellence in farm management through innovation, diversification and integration with tourism.
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.
The Congress program also includes 2 days of field tours visiting farms and related institutions in northern Tasmania, presentations on global “hot topics”, and contributed papers on the Congress sub-themes.
IFMA 22 is hosted by the Tasmanian Department of Primary Industry, Parks, Water and the Environment and the University of Tasmania under their joint venture as the Tasmanian Institute of Agriculture.
There will be a one week pre-congress tour in Tasmania and a one week post-congress tour on mainland Australia (travelling from Melbourne through farming areas of south-east Australia to Sydney.
