+ details

2014 Agronomists Forum
FAR facilities at Innovation Park, 185 Kirk Road, Templeton, Christchurch.

Times: 10am to 4pm, followed by networking over drinks and nibbles

This year will see 11 sessions covering a wide range of topics within the key areas of Pest Management, Regulation and Nutrients and Productivity. The final programme will be available shortly. The focus is on providing the participants with findings and recommendations from completed research projects which they can apply in their businesses as well as providing a forum for discussion on topics which may lead to further work.

Last year over 30 attended the forum which was held in conjunction with the annual PNZ conference in Wellington (July 2013), this year we are aiming for increased attendance as we have moved the date from July to August and located this year’s forum closer to a significant potato growing region.

Any questions please contact Andrea Crawford andrea.crawford@potatoesnz.co.nz) or 029 602 6329.

Full programme and registration forms will be available shortly.
