(Panel discussion will be held from 2:45pm-3:30pm)

Join the Soil Wealth ICP team at the Annual Vegetable Industry Seminar at Hort Connections 2022 as we explore cutting-edge practices and technologies that are key to improving productivity, profitability and sustainability in the Australian vegetable industry.

Leading growers will provide first-hand experience and insights from hosting a demonstration site as part of the project over the past eight years.

We will tackle some of the big topics – from strip-till, cover crops, soil amendments and biological products – and your burning questions about putting research into practice: 

  • What are the benefits of hosting demonstration sites and undertaking trials? 
  • Why is it important to innovate? 
  • How do you start trialling a new technology or practice on your farm? 
  • Who do you look to for inspiration and research? 

Grower panel to be confirmed in the coming weeks.
