Innovation on agenda

After a three-year hiatus due to COVID-19, the Growing SA Conference is back in 2022.

Growing SA 2022’s theme is sustainability and the conference program focuses on requirements integral to achieving this on-farm such as innovation, taking advantage of opportunities, planning for challenges and building skills for a prosperous future.

Hosted by Grain Producers SA and Livestock SA, the 2022 event will be held over two days at the Adelaide Hills Convention Centre, Hahndorf, on August 29 and 30.

With the full program due for release next month, special guests at the event will include Minister for Primary Industries and Regional Development Clare Scriven, National Farmers’ Federation President Fiona Simson, Food Agility CRC’s Dr Madeline Mitchell and Australian Farm Institute’s Katie McRobert.

GPSA chief executive Brad Perry and Livestock SA chief executive Travis Tobin encouraged producers to take part in Growing SA to gain valuable insights at a time of continuing global disruption for agriculture.

GPSA and Livestock SA will host their annual general meetings on the Monday, followed by a conference dinner in the evening which will provide networking opportunities with producers and industry representatives from all industries across the state.

Tuesday will offer a full day of plenary speakers, attracting local and national guests to stimulate discussion and introduce new ideas.
