Photo recap APEX-Brinkman PCA Conference:

Australian industry provides room for growth and discussion

This week the Australian protected cropping industry gathered in Adelaide for the biannual Apex-Brinkman PCA Conference. The event kicked off last Sunday with the opening of the trade show, followed by an extensive speaker program on Monday and Tuesday. Several on site farm visits after the conference concluded the jam-packed week for many of the delegates. 


Farm visits, speakers, drinks, networking: The PCA keeps the Australian industry busy

The Australian protected cropping industry is on the move and provides a lot of room for discussion. This was already reflected in earlier articles with Job Roskam of Brinkman Australia and PCA chairman Robert Hayes of Freshzest. The latter one again made headlines this week when he expressed his concerns over funding arrangements for the Australian horticulture industry during his welcome speech.  


Senator Anne Ruston has a look at a Moving gully display by Grow Australia, who won the Best Trade Booth 2017 award. 

In her opening speech, assistant minister for agriculture, Senator Anne Ruston, responded to Hayes and encouraged the protected cropping industry to enter into a discussion about the funding arrangements. 

It was the start of a vibrant conference that attracted many professionals from the under cover fruit and vegetable industry. From suppliers to growers and from greenhouse constructors to researchers; many found their way to Adelaide to hear and see the latest developments in the Australian protected cropping industry.





Thanks to the generous support of PCA editor Saskia Blanch, who was crowned with the PCA Award for Excellence, and her photographer Raquel Neofit, we can offer you a small recap photo report of the 2017 Apex-Brinkman PCA Conference. 



See you next year! Then this guy will be in charge......
