  • Emily French, ConsiliAgra, Chicago, who will speak on the global grain market outlook and implications for growers;
  • Local and international customers who will address changing requirements in terms of quality, sustainability and certification;
  • Simon Talbot, CEO of the National Farmers Federation, who will speak about the future of the grains industry;
  • Chief executives from leading research and development organisations who will discuss the latest development in global R&D and what’s in the yield/quality pipeline for Australian growers;
