Postponed - 50th Anniversary Symposium Wed/Thu 1-2 Sep 

Due to the current Covid-19 lockdown, unknown timing of alert level changes, and because we would prefer a face-to-face celebration of 50 years of the Society, the Agronomy Society Council took the decision on 25 Aug to postpone the 50th Anniversary symposium scheduled for next week (Wednesday/Thursday 1-2 Sep). 

The Symposium will be postponed until April 2022 (dates to be confirmed shortly).  A message will be sent out to sponsors, registrants & members on Thu 26 Aug.


To promote the advancement of scientific research and the practice of agronomy in New Zealand, and to encourage the flow of agronomic information.

Who Are We?

We are a group of scientists, lecturers, students, agricultural and horticultural advisors, company representatives and farmers with an interest in agronomy.

Agronomy from the Greek agros field and nemein to manage.

Major Activities
