Wheatbelt Conference Targets Innovation

#GenAg2017 is the inaugural young farmer’s conference hosted by Kulin on Tuesday, July 25 and an initiative of the Kulin Community Resource Centre in partnership with Kulin Community Bank®.

This year’s theme, Spirit of Innovation, is about exploring the exciting role innovation and technology is playing in the development of modern farming techniques.

Opening keynote speaker Ms Alexander Gartmann, the Managing Director and Chief Executive Officer of Rural Bank is one of the fantastic speakers at the GenAg2017 conference.

 “I am looking forward to getting back to the WA Wheatbelt - a community that shaped my foundations and ignited my passion for Australia’s agricultural industry, and hear how they are tackling the challenge of innovation for real benefit,” Ms Gartmann said.

“For Australian agriculture and rural communities, it’s the practical that has always mattered – practical innovation which delivers productivity gains and sustainable profitability.

“For me GenAg2017 will not only be all about fostering and inspiring innovation, but also ensuring farmers remain at the centre of that conversation, supporting vibrant, sustainable farming businesses,” she said. 

Topics include; drones and other tech in agriculture, succession planning, team productivity on farms, industry outlooks, herbicide resistance, wealth creation, educational opportunities in agriculture, rebuilding the flock and mental health for farmers.

A key feature of the conference are the breakout sessions and a networking corner. Attendees are encouraged to make connections, whether it’s with other young farmers or potential new business relationships.
