Registration is now open for the Ag Excellence Forum & Awards, South Australia’s premier grower group event. A valued collection point for grower groups, government and industry to share experiences, develop new ideas, enrich connections and contribute to evolving conversations.

AgExForum24 will be held on 5 August 2024 at the Marion Hotel, Adelaide, South Australia. The full-day program will support the theme of ‘Future Farming | Turning Trends into Practice’, a response to the ever-increasing push to demonstrate sustainability credentials in agriculture and the role technology can play.

The program addresses drought resilience, emissions management, and the information and data generated for better decision making. There will be space for an interactive session involving the grower groups to learn how they are navigating sustainability requirements, identifying needs, and determining how to integrate this work with existing priorities.

“We aim to bring highly respected and foremost expertise on current issues in agriculture to generate a learning environment through constant engagement with presenters and fellow attendees”, said Leet Wilksch, Ag Ex Chair.

The program will feature keynote speakers SAGIT Chair, Andy Barr who will open the proceedings by delving into the global drivers of sustainability and emissions management.

Cathy McGowan AO, esteemed Chair of AgriFutures Australia will narrow down into how we can mobilise communities on emissions management.

Additional presenters will focus on the innovations and opportunities that exist for grower groups and the industry in managing emissions.

The day will culminate with the Gala Awards Dinner where industry colleagues will gather to network and celebrate grower group achievements with the winners of the PIRSA Grower Group and Ag Ex Perpetual Awards announced. For the first time, the Australian Institute of SA will also proclaim the winner of the ‘Jim McColl Young Consultant’ award.

One of Australia’s favourite storytellers Fiona McIntosh will regale the audience with her life experiences in writing speculative fiction, historical fiction, and hosting one of the country’s most successful writing masterclasses.

Seats are limited and registration is essential via Eventbrite.
