Hart Field Site Group

Hart is South Australia’s premier agronomic field site, managed by farmers to provide independent information and skills to the 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 focussed on being relevant to the broad-acre farming community 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.
