Australian Organic Limited’s inaugural Conference was held in Brisbane on 21-22 July, with approximately 200 delegates gathering to discuss change and transformation in the organics industry. The two-day event covered a breadth of pressing topics in the organics space, including supply chains & traceability, climate change, sustainable packaging, soil & biologicals, consumer trends and much more.
Climate change represents numerous future difficulties for the agricultural sector with extreme weather events already costing Australian farms on average $30,000 annually and rising (ABARES). Organic agriculture presents a growing opportunity to mitigate climate change by reducing direct and indirect sources of greenhouse gas emissions through carbon sequestration. Increasing soil carbon is just one of the many ways farmers can mitigate the effects of climate change. In this webinar, we'll delve further into this issue from a livestock perspective.
Wine grape production faces many challenges. Climatic extremes like heat and declining water resources are already putting pressure on the industry. Higher temperatures increase sugar levels and in-turn alcohol percentages in wine. As part of the interactive panel discussion, we will be joined by three experts in their field to help you prepare for climate change and learn from their triumphs and mistakes within the carbon market and industry.
Organic agriculture presents a growing opportunity to mitigate climate change by reducing direct and indirect sources of greenhouse gas emissions through carbon sequestration. Increasing carbon in soil is just one of the many ways farmers can mitigate the effects of climate change. Join us as we introduce the current Australian climate change situation, forecast and climate tools to equip producers with the means for efficient risk management.
