Record Aus/NZ Hort Event

22 May 2017

It was a pleasure to be part of Hort Connections 2017 in Adelaide recently and see first hand why it smashed delegate and exhibitor records to be the biggest and most comprehensive event in the history of Australian and New Zealand horticulture, attracting 2,489 delegates including international visitors from 15 countries.

High quality speakers, industry coverage from grower to supply chain through to market and relationship building opportunities; these were the highlights for the LawrieCo team and our exhibitor partners Dr Ashley Martin and Dr Maria Manjarrez-Martinez from Microbiology Laboratories Australia.

LawrieCo's Mat Denton and Rodney Capon also joined the line up of speakers, with the Irrigation Australia stream on Wednesday 17 May. Their presentation highlighted the effect of soil health, including the microbiology of soil, has on water efficiency and productivity.
