Your Invitation to Participate

Take this unique opportunity to join researchers from around Australia at the 19th Australian Agronomy Conference – the peak scientific conference for agronomists.

Held biennially, the 2019 conference, hosted jointly by Charles Sturt University and the NSW Department of Primary Industries at Wagga Wagga NSW, provides a unique opportunity for sponsors to participate in, and support, the future of Australian agronomy.

The 2019 Cells to Satellite program will feature leading international and national speakers. Researchers from across Australia and New Zealand will share their latest research findings. Join us in pushing the boundary of current thinking and setting the agenda for future research in agronomy.

Wagga Wagga, located halfway between Melbourne and Sydney, lies on the edge of the sheep-wheat mixed farming belt and a productive horticultural region. Producing 15% of the national agricultural output with a  farm gate value of $5.2 billion, field trips across the productive Riverina will be a highlight of the conference.

Sponsorship provides you with an opportunity to be involved and help shape the future of agronomy in Australia.

Don’t miss the opportunity to be part of the 19th Australian Agronomy
Conference in Wagga Wagga.
