This year the conference is in Hawke’s Bay and you shouldn’t miss it. The conference location in Napier has excellent facilities, Te Pania hotel across the road and adjoining salt water baths to relax in. Get in early!
The three day conference is looking at three issues – each the centre of discussion for one day. The basis for each day is about defining a resource, the risks associated with it, and managing those risks.
- Day 1 Management of the Heretaunga Plains water resource – water use, allocation and irrigation efficiency, + a field trip
- Day 2 Intensification of land use in hill country – managing the issues, + a field trip and workshop
- Day 3 Catchment management of the Ruataniwha Plains – soil health and surface management + a field trip
