This conference is a partnership between the Australian Farm Institute and the Sydney Institute of Agriculture.

Conservation agriculture has transformed the Australian farming sector over the past 50 years by delivering increases in productivity and profitability alongside improvements in soil health, water efficiency and other environmental gains. Understanding the risks embedded in current conservation agriculture systems and anticipating impacts such as disruptive technologies and community trust issues is vital to ensuring that conservation agriculture can continue to deliver transformative outcomes for Australian farmers. At this conference policy barriers, research gaps and development opportunities will be identified by asking the question 'What might conservation agriculture look like in 2030?’
