2013 Agronomy Conference

 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.


 Food security and safety continues to be a topic of global significance. As competition for resources increases agronomists have a critical role to play in ensuring the profitable and sustainable production of food and feed products.

This year our conference theme is Sustaining agriculture and horticulture - new science, technologies and practices. We look forward to a range of papers on these topics during our 3-day joint event (November 5-7) with the NZ Grasslands Association.

More details will be available on our website in the coming months, including a full program outlining the mix of plenary speakers, technical sessions and field visits.
