Passing of George Hill, Fellow of the Agronomy Society of New Zealand

 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.

It is with sadness that we advise that George Hill passed away on Monday last week. George Hill was a member of the Agronomy Society Council from 1975 until 2011. George was also Editor of the Agronomy Society Proceedings for a number of years. George’s contribution to the Society was recognised by his being made a Fellow of the Society. We extend the Society's deepest sympathy to George’s wife Roberta and family.
