The sixth Australian Controlled Traffic Farming Conference will be held in Dubbo, NSW, on August 12-14. Seven international speakers will address the conference which will include a trade show and field tour.
Organisers say the CTF 08 program will have application to the grain, cotton, sugar and horticultural industries. More than half the speakers are farmers and the program provides time for individual discussions.
Controlled Traffic Farming (CTF) is an Australian-led farming system aimed at reducing compaction in cropping paddocks and increasing the efficiency and profitability of cropping operations.
CTF provides a framework for efficient use of a wide range of farm machinery, GPS systems, GIS software and measuring and monitoring systems.
About 250 delegates from across Australia are expected to attend the conference.
