Invitation to Submit

The conference committee invite all researchers wishing to submit a paper to the 2019 Australian Agronomy Conference in Wagga Wagga next August, to submit an Expression of Interest. Please find below additional detail on what is required for each stage and understand that by submitting a EOI you will create an author profile on the conference proceedings portal for use in submitting your conference paper next March.

We trust this change will be welcome and streamline the process of submitting a paper.  To assist you, Agronomy Australia president Dr Jeff McCormick, has prepared a short video on the new process which you can access from this link; Submitting your Expression of Interest.

You are required to submit a Expression of Interest if you intend to submit a full paper for the 2019 conference.


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.
