 ABOUT THE CONFERENCE

Primary producers face a raft of legal challenges – from structuring the family farm, to handing over the keys to the next generation. Moreover, the agribusiness industry is in a constant state of change, with increased biosecurity regulations, major developments in land tenure, as well as water management.
