With the introduction of the new Biosecurity Act 2015 and proposed Regulation in 2016 that provides a framework for the prevention, elimination and minimisation of biosecurity risks posed by pests, diseases, weeds and contaminants to the economy, environment and communities of NSW, coupled with the Invasive Species Plan 2015- 2022 objectives there has never been a more important time for weed professionals to be able to meet the challenges of the practical implementation of these changes within the industry.
Our theme of Experience the highs – working smarter together looks to build on the successes of the past whilst looking to the future as we transition into this new era in weed management and control, an approach that must be based on regional cooperation as well as providing a common focus for the actions of the numerous land managers across all tenures. With this in mind Session themes will broadly revolve around Biosecurity in Action; Technology & Innovation; Community, Extension & Social Marketing; Collaboration & Case Studies with a special feature being the Open Debate.
We look forward to your involvement and understanding of the challenges and innovations that will see our industry continue to make a valued contribution to the natural environment, agricultural sustainability, economy and communities across our State.
