You don’t have to look far for reasons you can’t afford to miss this event …

2041 – Changes & Choices… CTV’s special report Sept. 15/15 – “There is less than 1% of the population farming and that’s falling, we can’t feed the world now. Add to that the great corporate land grab, there is nowhere left to farm…”

Mike Lee believes, “we must implement massive structural shifts of innovation in our food system, without this there is no way to address the current, far less the future needs of people, planet and profit. Food & farming are the engines of society, they drive all other innovation.”

Danielle Gould sees opportunity in the face of challenge, “This is the start of the greatest food system revolution since the Green Revolution. Country Heritage Park’s (CHP) forum is key to helping us understand its drivers and explore the ways to work together towards a better future.”

There you have it, three paragraphs full of ‘must see’ reasons to book your seat now!

Topics:

  • Drivers of change and emerging scenarios for food retail
  • Challenges and opportunities to food security, climate change, land use and environment
  • Creating a food future that’s better for people, profit, and the planet
  • Food design and innovation in the future
  • Impact of changing social values influencing consumer behavior
  • Reactions and adaptations from leading food industry & farming specialists

To Clean or Not to Clean? Managing DON in Grain Corn

A number of growers cleaned corn this fall in efforts to reduce DON. Whether it is on the combine or at the bins, the general message is to remove as much fines or cob as possible as these harbour the highest levels of DON. Cleaning reports were variable however; some reported good luck in reducing DON, while others reported little or no change.
