The Soil CRC will be holding its inaugural Participants Conference in Newcastle on 2-4 April 2019.

The Conference is open to all staff and members of our 39 Participant organisations and will be an opportunity for members of the Soil CRC to share knowledge, ideas and plans for current and future projects.

There will be opportunities to network and collaborate with researchers, farmers, industry and students who are involved in the Soil CRC. It is in the collaboration between our members that strengthens the work of the CRC.

We will be sharing research already completed and setting research priorities for new projects that have recently been announced.
