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.
