Welcome to Hart

Agricultural research and extension since 1982

Hart is South Australia’s premier agronomic field site, managed by farmers and industry professionals to provide independent research that is timely, relevant and unbiased, as well as cutting edge and innovative.

Hart's event calendar begins with our annual Getting The Crop In seminar (March).

Our research program is then show-cased on site at our Winter Walk (July), main Field Day (September), and at our Spring Twilight Walk (October).

Your feedback
We've just undertaken a review of our 5 year strategic plan and one of our focuses for the next 12 months or so will be on you - to make sure we're meeting your expectations and delivering exactly what you need from us. We'll be providing opportunities for you to tell us what you think we do well, what you think we need to do better and what you think we've missed altogether. If you already have some thoughts you'd like to share we'd love to hear from you - all feedback will be greatfully received. PROVIDE FEEDBACK
