Australian Agronomy Conference - Ballarat

Printer-friendly version
24 Sep 2017 (All day)

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 a more developed global community that requires more diverse products from agriculture.

Sessions will cover a wide range of topics, including:

  • Nutrient management
  • Soil management
  • Weeds, pests and diseases
  • Physiology and breeding
  • Climate change
  • Technology
  • Managing productive and sustainable landscapes
  • Farm business and practice change.


Standard registration costs from $325 per day, up to $845 for the full conference.
