Spragg Agricultural Research & Development Award

 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.

Applications are now invited from prospective candidates for the Spragg Agricultural Research & Development Award.  The travel award was established to help scientists, advisors, consultants or PhD students holding a relevant tertiary qualification to foster general research and development in soils, plants and animals related to the New Zealand pastoral industry.  For more details please contact Sumita Paul (  Applications close on 1 October and 1 April every year.
