18th Annual Fields on Wheels Conference: Climate Change and Grain Transportation

Title: 18th Annual Fields on Wheels Conference: Climate Change and Grain Transportation
Location: Delta Hotel, Winnipeg MB
Date: October 22, 2013

Despite weather extremes of heat, cold, drought and flooding, Canada has built a globally successful agricultural export base with a reliable transportation system. Extreme weather events aren’t new, and past major disruptions have been followed by drawn out and costly recovery. Recently though, such weather events have become more extreme and more frequent, a sign of a changing climate.

The annual Fields on Wheels Conference deals with a topical issue about Western Canadian agricultural supply chains that support the grain industry’s ability to compete in global markets. This year the event will consider the impact of climate change on agricultural output and on transportation service providers, with emphasis on how they plan to cope with new challenges and emergencies. You need to be a part of these important discussions if you are a stakeholder to this critical industry, as a producer, a carrier or logistics service provider, a policymaker, regulator, academic or a customer.
