The NSW Farmers have postponed their annual conference that was set to be held in Sydney due to the recent coronavirus outbreak.

The conference, which was set down for July 13 to 15, will now be held in Dubbo from August 31 to September 2.

NSW Farmers' president James Jackson said the board decided to go with plan B for their conference as there was 'covid-19 hesitancy".

"We were always going to plan B if covid-19 prevented us from having the conference in Sydney," Mr Jackson said.

"We were not sure if the health orders would allow us to go to Sydney three weeks time so we had to make the decision now.

"The board met and made the decision there was too much risk with the Sydney option."

NSW farmers' members were informed about decision earlier today.
