2012 Agronomy Conference and Seeds Symposium

 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.

Our annual agronomy conference will be held co-jointly with the Seeds - Realising their Potential Symposium at Lincoln University, Canterbury from November 20-22, 2012.

The conference theme is delivering profitable, sustainable and resilient farming systems.  We’ve already received a wide variety of topical papers, and the conference program and registration details will be available on our website in the coming months.

In addition to oral sessions we are also planning two half day field trips to showcase traditional and emerging industries on the Canterbury Plains.

The event promises to be another success, so mark your calendars now!
