Symposium: Farm profitability in a food insecure world

Monday, June 3, 2013

This one-day symposium hosted by PIARN will explore a more profitable, less emissions-intensive primary industries sector. Leading national and international speakers will examine the current impacts of climate variability on agricultural industries, strategies to optimise future farm profitability, and how national and international carbon policy could support these responses. The symposium will conclude with a high calibre forum focused on ‘What the Carbon Farming Initiative could be’ for the Australian farming community.

Confirmed speakers include: Mark Howden (CSIRO), Mick Keogh (Australian Farm Institute), Harry Clark (AgResearch NZ), Mark Wootton (Jigsaw Farms), Lucinda Corrigan (Rennylea Angus), Graham Farquhar (ANU) and Richard Eckard (PICCC).

The symposium is open to research, industry, government and community stakeholders with an interest in exploring future research and policy directions – but places are limited.
