Spring growth echoes industry growth
As spring growth continues, it’s great to also see signs of growth for our industry too. New product launches, industry recognition and the ability to get out into the world are all very welcome growth dynamics. We’re looking forward to next month’s Springtime Fieldays! Many of our stakeholders will be onsite and planning shared activities for next year. We’ll also be hosting and presenting several activities and hope to see you there.
Decade of disruption and the age of agritech
My first international adventure since the pandemic has shown me that while we’ve been working on agritech growth strategies, so has the rest of the world!
Robotics Plus unveils it’s autonomous platform
Industry leader and AgriTechNZ member Robotics Plus were in the news recently when they launched their multi-use modular autonomous vehicle at FIRA USA 2022. We celebrate their ‘global from day one’ approach and look forward to further growth of the company and New Zealand agritech’s global impact.
NZ International Business Awards
Congratulations to AgriTechNZ members Agrisea and UBCO for being chosen as finalists in the International Business Awards.
Common language in farming data
We are working with Rezare Systems and the Ministry for Primary Industries (MPI) on a project to align the way we describe and identify data elements. This will help our ecosystem participate in a range of industry initiatives without ‘reinventing the wheel’ each time.
Emissions pricing submission
We are preparing a submission to the Ministry for the Environment (MfE) and the MPI on the Government’s proposal to price agricultural greenhouse gas emissions in Aotearoa New Zealand from 2025. We believe the good use of digital tools and the inclusion of agritech service providers and their partners can address many of the issues raised by stakeholders in these discussions. If you’d like to express an opinion or join the conversation, please get in touch.
