New South Wales Annual Lecture
Each year the New South Wales Branch hosts the Harald Jensen Memorial Lecture. The Harald Jensen Lecture is an annual lecture held by the NSW Branch of Soil Science Australia, as a forum to discuss and reflect upon contemporary and historical soil science issues. The Inaugural Lecture was given in 2005, by Dr Pat Walker, who gave an interesting presentation on the ‘Soil Pioneers of Australia’.
The 2016 Lecture will be announced at the NSW 60th anniversary gala dinner.
Registration and further information will be via the Register for Events icon on the home page.
