Australian Agronomy Conference (24-28 Sept 2017)

The 18th Australian Agronomy Conference will be held at the Mercure Ballarat Hotel and Convention Centre, Victoria from 24-28 September 2017.  The Australian Agronomy Conference is the meeting place for Agronomists; it supports research and the community of Agronomists by connecting Agronomy communities across Australia to each other.

The theme for the 2017 conference is “Doing more with less”.  A central plank of Australia’s productive output is agriculture, worth over AUD$13.6 billion exported annually.  Agronomy is key to ensuring that farmland is productive across Australia’s diverse landscapes.  Innovation in machinery and precision technologies, plant species and varieties, soil and plant management may allow the agronomist of today to successfully help agricultural producers thrive.  These innovations are timely as the world deals with increasingly variable climates, environmental degradation, and increasing, more developed global community that requires more diverse products from agriculture.
