Co-operative Conversations episode 5 part 2: roundtable

12 August 2020 19:45 - 20:45


Sharing knowledge for the better

In a world where a competitive edge is often technology driven, data is driving efficiencies and profits in the agribusiness sector. Could knowledge captured and shared through co-operative ventures allow farms to thrive together? How can we get farmers to trust each other and share their data?

Meet the businesses doing just that and hear how, why, and what happened. If you are interested in exploring what is involved when agribusinesses share data, this roundtable is a great place to start.

Join journalist Pete Lewis with special guests: Wally Newman (farmer), Phillip Guthrie (Birchip Cropping Group), Kelly Pearce (Wheatbelt Science) and Melina Morrison

Episode host – Pete Lewis

Join Pete Lewis for an inspiring interview series as he explores the journeys of some of Australia’s most interesting and successful co-operatives. Pete’s long and varied experience as a journalist specialising in agriculture will ensure he gets to the heart of the issues you want to hear about.
