Conservation agriculture has transformed Australian farming, delivering productivity increases alongside environmental improvements. Anticipating emerging risks and potential impacts to this system is vital if conservation agriculture is to continue delivering transformative outcomes.
What might conservation agriculutre look like in 2030?
A partnership between the Australian Farm Institute (AFI) and the Sydney Institute of Agriculture (SIA).
Conservation agriculture is the dominant cropping system in Australia, yet many conservation agriculture practices are under threat. Accelerated evolution of farming systems is necessary to ensure that Australian farmers can continue to farm in a profitable, productive and sustainable fashion. This edition explores some of the drivers for change to current systems and forecasts what future systems may look like.
Environmental, societal and practical challenges to current practice are driving a clear need for change. The scientific community is actively engaged in this discussion and is working to provide Australian farmers with new facts and practices to ensure that Australian agriculture continues to thrive.
