AGRIFOCUS 2021 – A Field Day with a Twist

AGRIFOCUS 2021 is Southern Farming Systems leading technical event for high rainfall zone cropping and pasture systems.  This unique event provides independent solutions for farming businesses.

Traditionally held as a Face to Face event at the Inverleigh Trial Site on the 3rd Wednesday in October.  Where farmers, agronomists/advisors and company representatives can network and show their product research in action.  Southern Farming Systems has yet again had to reinvent the event due to COVID.
