Not long to go now! By the time you get to the end of term you'll be
needing a cold one, whatever your poison.
Lucky for everyone that Jaimie has lined up Ian Layden to come and have one
with us on the verandah at the Australian Hotel right here in Gympie. From
6pm on Nov 25 we'll be chatting with Ian about the future of agribusiness
with collaboration between farmers and scientists, precision agriculture
and the groundbreaking work being done on a simple system that will reduce
runoff and damage to the Great Barrier Reef.
The work that Ian and his team do have been featured several times on ABC
Landline and in ABC Rural media. Ian commenced work with DAF in 2005 and
undertook a range of horticultural field trials responding to nitrogen loss
in intensive horticulture. In 2015 he constructed the first
denitrification bioreactor in Queensland, there are now more than 20
bioreactors being installed across Queensland agricultural systems. Ian's
role is to develop R&D projects that increase the use of technology and
innovative farm management practices.
This is a free event but tickets are available at
scienceinthepub.eventbrite.com.au so that we can order some catering
platters for you. We have booked tables in the family area on the verandah
so children are welcome.
We'd like to make this an event a few times a year as part of the Gympie
Bone Museum so please show us that you think it's a good idea and share
this with your networks so that as many science superheroes as possible see
Gympie Bone Museum Project
*Come and see what you'll look like later*
