The BSTA annual conference and Annual General Meeting is held in late January or early February each year.

Conference Proceedings are published and the conference format changes to suit the conference theme. The theme for 2015 was “Going forward in agriculture – Innovative “out-of-the-box” solutions”. A total of ten (10) presentations were made on various topics, ranging from the processing of sweet potato into value-added products to the use of “vinasse” as a soil fertilizer and conditioner, among other very interesting topics.
