About 220 people attended the third annual GROWING SA Conference, held Monday 26 and Tuesday 27 August at the Adelaide Hills Convention Centre, Hahndorf. 

It was the first time the conference had been held over two days, with both Livestock SA and Grain Producers SA holding their annual general meetings on the Monday, followed by pre-dinner drinks thanks to Mellor Olsson and the Ramsey Bros GROWING SA Conference dinner, which showcased some of SA’s finest food and beverages. 

Delegates were then treated to a full day of speakers on Tuesday, exploring key themes such as agetch, biotechnology, glyphosate, animal activism and building trust in agriculture.
