A CARBON trading in agriculture forum is coming up in May and will feature one of the drivers of the emissions trading debate on the Coalition side of politics.
Andrew Robb - the man assisting Malcolm Turnbull with the emissions trading debate - will participate in a forum titled Carbon Trading and Climate Change in Agriculture on day two of the 2009 Australian Vegetable Industry Conference.
More than 50 speakers will take part in the research and development showcase on day three, which will cover topics such as recycled water, soil health, integrated pest management (IPM), succession planning, strategic leadership and on-farm biosecurity.
It will feature the latest outcomes from levy-funded research in the Australian vegetable, potato and onion industries.
The forum will be a highlight of the program on Tuesday May 5, which also included international speakers Professor David Hughes, Emeritus Professor of Food Marketing from London’s Imperial College; Jin Ju Wilder, President, Coast Produce Company, Los Angeles; and Dr Frank Louws, an Extension Plant Pathologist from North Carolina.
