New Zealand representatives attend the Protected Cropping Australia (PCA) Conference
Plant Empowerment, Vertical Farming, Climate Change, Energy and Renewables, Nutrition and Irrigation, Post Harvest and much more!
In July I attended the Protected Cropping Australia Conference in Brisbane. Over 700 delegates from Australia, New Zealand and around the world attended. Over the next few months, I will be writing articles about various presentations.
It was great to catch up with other New Zealand delegates attending the conference. There was a wide range of presentations – (including myself). My presentation focused on the standard substrates used in greenhouse vegetable production and why growers prefer one over another.
The hardest aspect of the conference was deciding which presentation to attend as three rooms were running concurrently. The exhibition hall was filled with 52 exhibitors. With all the new and interesting products, I was like a kid in a candy store.
The conference did not disappoint, it was informative a great opportunity to network and to bring the growers and industry suppliers together. Keep an eye out for future articles related to the PCA Conference 2023.
