Evidence Based Agriculture

Presentation at Agronomy Community Meetings
Pasture nutrition experiment, Armidale New South Wales

Requesting evidence of effects should be part of every advisor and farmers review of new or existing products. There is no substitute for good science in making these assessments - opinions, beliefs, endorsements and testimonials may sell a lot of products, but what is needed is evidence from well designed field experiments that products do meet the claims they make. Truth in advertising is a significant part of current legislation about consumer protection and if claims are made they must be able to be substantiated.

This presentation was made at Kingaroy and Dubbo as part of the Agronomy Community meetings in July 2013.
