Welcome to the South Australian branch home page!
Here in SA we have a lively soil science community committed to digging deeper into soils and expanding new horizons. Spread across the state our members work for The University of Adelaide, University of South Australia, Flinders University, PIRSA, SARDI and private enterprise, to name just a few.
Our diverse group meets regularly at informal seminar nights, and a large crowd historically gathers for our Annual Lecture, held in September/October each year. The annual field trip is always an exciting day, drawing people from far and wide.
If you wish to connect with other soil scientists in SA and learn about what is happening on the ground in your state then please join us and become a member of the SA branch. You can email the branch firstname.lastname@example.org if you require any additional information.
We look forward to seeing you at our next event, all welcome!

The South Australian Branch selected a Calcarosol as the State soil. Calcarosols are calcareous sandy loams that are well drained, alkaline, moderately fertile and reasonably deep. They occur throughout SA and are used widely for cereal growing, pasture and irrigated horticulture, particularly vineyards.
