Breakfast & Panel Discussion: Progress on Ag’s 2030 Roadmap

Breakfast & Panel Discussion – Progress on Ag's 2030 Roadmap

Farmers know that the good times (and prices) don’t always last. Across many commodities, they’re now coming off the back of record high prices.

But can you engineer a good time, and how is the Australian agriculture industry doing that? It has a plan to increase the value of production at the farmgate to $100 billion by 2030.

Join the Rural Press Club of Victoria as we discuss progress towards ag’s big goal.

Are we on track? Is enough being done to meet the target? Will it all come down to good prices and good luck? How big a deal is this to farmers?

Award-winning ag journalist Sue Neales will moderate a panel of guests representing the National Farmers Federation, corporate farmers and on-the-ground voices to answer all these questions and more.
