2020 AFSA National Conference

Fertiliser Fuelling Production

At this stage, we have decided to hold any decisions until mid April regarding postponing the conference. 

If at all possible, we would like to continue to run the event in August 2020 for our members, as it will be an important chance for everyone to catch up and work through the happenings of the last few months and how to move forward.

We thank you for your support of our Conference and will let you know as soon as we have further information regarding the event.


The Australian Fertiliser Services Association (AFSA) is embracing the theme “Fertiliser Fuelling Production” for anyone with an interest in the fertiliser industry, with product quality and spreadability, soil health, industry safety and latest equipment and technology featuring on the agenda.

The 2020 AFSA Conference will be held at The Bend Motorsport Park, near Tailem Bend in SA.
