National controlled traffic farming conference

Controlled traffic farming (CTF) is a system that delivers unparalleled improvements in productivity and sustainability. Farmers who are pushing the envelope of what CTF makes possible are unquestionably leading the pack in the development of profitable and sustainable cropping enterprises, often at low cost.

The barriers to the adoption of CTF can be overcome through better connectivity, engineering solutions, and a greater understanding of the agronomic solutions required to manage the system.

This conference will bring together a wide range of sectors to find practical adoption solutions and to continue the development of CTF. Themes include ‘Economics of CTF’, ‘Setting up the CTF system’, ‘Benefits of managing compaction in a CTF system’ and ‘Technologies that add value to CTF’.

  • Day 1: On-topic presentations and networking opportunities at Novotel Langley, Perth
  • Day 2: CTF in practice at Bolgart: issues, solutions and outcomes
