About the Australian Agronomy Conference

The Australian Agronomy Conference supports research and a sense of community by connecting agronomy professionals across Australia. 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.
