Soil Constraints on Pasture Productivity Symposium – Launceston
February 12, 2019 - February 14, 2019
The Australian Grassland Association (AGA) facilitates the ongoing improvement and development of the pasture industry by conducting a symposium each 2-3 years covering a key area of pasture production/science that their committee feels is being neglected.
The next symposium is on ‘Soil constraints on pasture productivity’ and will provide all grassland based red meat stakeholders (producers, scientists, advisors) with the opportunity to hear the latest scientific research, interact and exchange ideas and discuss current and future grassland challenges and producer needs.
These events draw attendees from across industry – public and private, and are actively engaging people and organisations from all over Australia to ensure that there is the widest possible contribution and exchange of ideas.
The ‘Soil constraints on pasture productivity’ symposium will cover areas such as a review of soil tests results and fertiliser use trends, key nutrients – what pastures need, mineral nutrition and trace elements (for pastures and livestock), soil biology and challenges and opportunities.
There are over 25 presentations planned for a 2.5 day symposium plus expect to run a half day field tour. Most of the presentations are of a rigorous scientific nature and will be published in a special edition of the CSIRO Journal, Crop and Pasture Science.
