The 19th Australian Agronomy Conference will be held in Wagga Wagga, NSW from
25 – 29 August 2019. In the heart of the Riverina, Wagga Wagga has a range of rural industries across the region. Wagga has everything to offer the agronomy conference being surrounded by a mixed farming zone with irrigation to the west and permanent pasture enterprises to the east.
The conference theme Cells to satellites highlights the integrative nature of agronomy. Each of us work across a range of disciplines to optimise crop or pasture production for productivity and profitability. We have an increasing number of tools available to increase the precision and accuracy of our work; whether it is at the “cellular” level where DNA is mapped and biochemistry is unravelled or using “satellites” for remote sensing or guidance. The opportunities for enhancing our agronomy research is boundless.
Join us in Wagga in 2019 to challenge your thinking, contribute your research outcomes and network with like-minded colleagues to shape the future of our industry.
2019 Organising Committee
We know you know it.
You’ve heard of it, passed through once, cheered on a famous sportsperson from there, it’s where your best friend’s cousin grew up.
We challenge you to travel the world and not find one of us. Someone the place named twice hasn’t touched. Someone who hasn’t passed through, ventured, visited or made a life under the blue, blue sky.
Oh, really? That big?
It’s a common question we hear. We’re big enough to be urban, in a landscape big enough to let us be country. More than 65,000 of us call Wagga Wagga home – yep, that’s why you always run into one of us.
Wagga Wagga is the place where paths cross and people meet. It was that way with the Wiradjuri people as they travelled the region following the cycle of ceremonies and seasons. With major transport routes, easy access to large metropolitan areas, plenty of industry and a large education sector it remains that way today.
Perhaps Wagga’s most famous attribute is its name, like having the Bono, Cher and Madonna version of a place name. It’s fun to say, because you say it twice – a reference to the Wiradjuri language custom, until you’re on friendly terms, and then you can just say ‘Wagga’
