Breathing New Life outlines the journey of the Cressy Research Station, founded in 1937 and becoming a Land Army training centre through the war, then a farmer training facility, and then a centre of excellence for Tasmanian agriculture. But what has become of the Cressy Research Station today, and can it be revitalized with a new breath of life and scientific purpose?
Tim Smallbon has enjoyed a career in Tasmanian agriculture spanning almost 40 years. Always having a passion for applied science, detail and technical skill led him to train as a seed and vegetable crop agronomist. Embracing the challenge of lifelong learning, he completed a Master’s degree by research within the last 5 years and was appointed Research Manager for Upper Murray Seeds to breathe new life into the Cressy Research Station.
