Agfest

The Agfest Field Days are nationally recognised as Tasmania’s Premier Agricultural Field Days. Agfest was started
in 1983 when the current Rural Youth members saw a need for an annual, well organised agricultural field day. The
1st event attracted 9,000 patrons and just over 100 exhibitors. This has now grown to over 60,000 attendees and
700 exhibitors.
Agfest is held in early May (the 1st Thursday always being the 1st day of Agfest) and runs for 3 days, Thursday to
Saturday. Agfest is run by a volunteer committee of 30 Rural Youth members and ex-members, with an average
age of 24 years and the sole motivation for these young people is the desire to make a significant contribution to
agriculture by staging the best possible event. It is an exhausting commitment, but one which provides immense
satisfaction and a sense of pride.

The event is finished.

#NutriSoil has loved receiving photos of a #wheat trial in Jerilderie. You can see the seeds which have industrial treatments on the left and are a pinky colour in the first photo. The seeds with the bigger #root system in the second photo are flanking the traditional treatment in the middle. And in the latest photo you can see the more fibrous root mass with the plants on the right, which were coated in #NutriSoil at #sowing. ... See MoreSee Less
