Producers and industry stakeholders will be treated to a packed program when GrowingSA returns next month.
Hosted by Grain Producers SA and Livestock SA on August 29 and 30, the conference will gather grain and livestock producers, industry service providers and decision-makers to hear the latest in policy developments, farm business advice and commodity research with a focus on sustainability and innovation from across the political, advocacy, research and production sectors.
GPSA CEO Brad Perry said he was excited to work with Livestock SA to put forward an engaging and relevant program for SA's grain and livestock sectors.
"Sustainability and what this means in a practical context for grain and livestock producers will be the primary focus of this year's conference, as well as the research, development and innovation happening in this space to improve the productivity and profitability of producers," he said.
Livestock SA CEO Travis Tobin said the program reflected the pressing issues facing SA producers.
"We know through our discussions with members that producers are grappling with the ever-increasing focus on sustainability," he said.
"We hope this program will help producers better understand its broader context and what they can do on farm to be more sustainable and profitable."
Keynote speakers include Primary Industries Minister Clare Scriven, National Farmers' Federation's Tony Mahar, SmartSat Cooperative Research Centre's Andy Koronios, Food Agility CRC's Dr Madeline Mitchell and Australian Farm Institute's Katie McRobert.
The conference will be held over two days at Hahndorf, with GPSA and Livestock SA to hold their respective AGMs on August 29.
The full day of plenary sessions will be held on August 30.
