There are lots of new innovations happening in cane farming. Join us in Cairns for this practical, hands on 2 day forum. Learn from farmers who are successfully changing their farming system and from the extension specialists supporting them. Visit farms and see cover crops, controlled traffic, permanent beds, soil health, compost and new machinery in action. Identify the key steps to take on your place to make improvements. Learn how soil heath can transform your business and why it is as important to your business as good nutrient management.
