Agronomy Society supports Lincoln student to attend the International Crop Science Congress

 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.

We are pleased to announce that Richard Sims is the recipient of the Agronomy Society’s travel award to attend the International Crop Science Congress in Brazil next month.  The Congress is a global event, with scientists from around the world converging to discuss and debate topical issues facing the broader agricultural industry.  Richard is a PhD student at Lincoln University and will be presenting his research on growth and dry matter partitioning in seedling lucerne as affected by sowing date and water availability.  He will also give his talk at our November Conference at Lincoln.
