HART - about us

Hart is South Australia’s premier agronomic field site, managed by farmers to provide independent information and skills to the broad-acre cropping industry.

Since 1982, the Hart Field-Site Group have been conducting cropping trials at Hart in the Mid-North of South Australia.   These trials are designed to focus on the most relevant issues facing the broad-acre farming community today and are conducted independently.

The substantial trials site at Hart is available for inspection throughout each growing season at Hart Crop Walks and Field Days and for student / farming group tours by appointment.

Results are published each year in our comprehensive Trials Results book.  We also facilitate various seminars and workshops.

Trial research and events are substantially funded by sourcing grants and through the valuable contribution made by our sponsors.  This financial support is vital.
