The National Farmers’ Federation’s 2018 National Congress is almost here and the NFF are excited to exploring the theme of DIVERSIFY.
The NFF National Congress is a biennial event that gathers speakers from around the country and the globe to share their unique agricultural expertise with an audience who have a passion for agriculture.
The event aims to provide thought leadership that prompts discussion on how Australian agriculture can reach its potential.
This year the discussions will be in light of the NFF’s bold vision for agriculture to be worth $100 billion by 2030 and will be unpacked through topics which focus on people, global markets, the environment and technology.
Over the course of two action packed days, guests will hear keynote addresses from key players such as Prime Minister Scott Morrison, the Minister for Agriculture and Water Resources David Littleproud, Global Head of R&D for Bayer Crop Science Dr Robert Reiter, Visy Executive Chairman Anthony Pratt, Michael Every from Rabobank and many more.
Themed sessions all about agtech, workforce inclusion and sustainability contain a panel of accomplished and inspiring speakers who aim to propel Australian agriculture into the future and towards becoming a $100 billion industry.
The highly anticipated Talking 2030 Roadmap will be launched at the event and participants of the Diversity in Agriculture Leadership Program will graduate at a breakfast held in their honour.
