POSTPONED: VicNoTill 2022 Conference: Carbon Power

  • February 10 2022 - 8:00am
Update, January 12, 2022: It is with sincerest regret and disappointment that VicNoTill is postponing our Carbon Power conference for the third time.
We had hoped to bring together our large network of farmers and highly valued sponsors of our not-for-profit organisation in Moama on February 9, 2022 with an incredible line-up of speakers, but the unfolding COVID situation places too great a risk on us all.
This year is VicNoTill’s 20th year and one of the group’s highlights since it started has been our annual conference. The conversations and ideas that are sparked when innovative and like-minded farmers, scientists, government bodies and agricultural industry innovators get into a room together are what keeps us all at the forefront of change. None are more disappointed than us that this hasn’t been possible since our last conference in 2019.
We are following the COVID situation closely and will look at our conference again as soon as we are able. Anyone who has purchased a ticket will be refunded. Send good vibes for being able to get our large farmer network together in the near future!

VicNoTill is thrilled to see the return of our annual farmers helping farmers conference – take 2 in 2022!

SPEAKER LINE-UP

Gardening Australia’s Costa Georgiadis is a 2019 Logie award winner and a landscape architect with an all-consuming passion for plants and people. Costa believes in embracing and celebrating mother nature’s cycles and seasons and nurturing her balance, beauty and bounty organically. His holistic approach is all about gardening the soil and the soul.

Dr Terry McCosker, the director of Carbon Link, is an internationally acclaimed educator and has worked in research, extension and property management in both government and private sectors for almost 55 years. Terry founded Carbon Link in 2007 with the vision of helping farmers to get paid for improving their soil.

Michael Eyres and Edward Scott from Field Systems focus on understanding farmers’ current production systems and then put actions into place to incrementally increase productivity and profitability across managed landscapes. They utilise the combination of in-field assessment with laboratory analytical data to diagnose and develop the best recommendations for soil management decisions that work. Farmers and other land managers look to them to help make important and well defined decisions to improve their soil performance.

And of course the conference will feature our usual line-up of leading Australian farmers who will take you on their journey of ‘good farming’ where they strive to build soil biology, improve nutritional value and farm profitably.
