Geography in Conversation
RGSQ recommends that all attendees at this event be fully vaccinated against COVID-19 or exempt.

With Guest speakers, Dr Piet Filet, Queensland Water Modelling Network Engagement and Collaboration Manager with Griffith University, Australian Rivers Institute, and Dr Andrew Biggs, pedologist and soil surveyor with the Department of Natural Resources. Moderated by John Tasker, President RGSQ.

Water management and soil profiles have always been important in the expansion of agriculture in Qld. Agricultural production to provide for population growth and export markets relies heavily on soils and the available water. Is it possible to regenerate the balance between water resources, healthy soils and fulfill the increasing demand for agricultural production?

The Q&A forum will enable you to ask questions on the hydrological resources, water flow, storage and quality, and how that impacts on soil quality and food production in SE Qld. 

Come along for light refreshments before settling in for an informed conversation on a topic of interest to us all.
