A comprehensive line up of local and overseas speakers is just one of many highlights of the conference which will include machinery demonstrations, factory tours and question and answer sessions.

The conference will focus on four major themes: how CTF impacts soils and agronomy, climate change and environment; CTF technology; CTF systems, and farmer's own experience with CTF.

Machinery demonstrations include wheel track renovators from Knuckeys of Winchelsea, Grizzly, TPOS Fabrications and K-Line.

The venue for the conference is Federation University and there will be a pre-conference dinner held on the evening of 12 February.
