Cropping Convos

An online, interactive webinar series with regenerative specialists

Coming up! Our Cropping Convos – “Ask Me Anything” series with regenerative specialists.

This is an opportunity to connect with a range of agronomists, agroecologists, and consultants over a casual Zoom call with other grain growers. You can ask your burning questions and discuss your challenges over a range of topics including multispecies, plant nutrition, nitrogen management and the language of plants.

These free online sessions are held over an hour and run from the 29th February – 8th March, at 12pm AEDT.  The sessions are not recorded. 

The Cropping Convos are open to everyone, whether you are currently cropping and wanting to experiment with regenerative practices, or you are considering adding cropping to your enterprise mix. 

We look forward to seeing you there!
