Agritech: Innovating Towards Sustainability

Friday, April 5th, 2024

We are heading to Central Otago to meet the innovative farmers and growers in the regions as part of our first-ever domestic agritech tour. Over two days, you will get to see a range of innovative operations, all with sustainability at their core, alongside a busload of other like-minded agritech companies, growers and ecosystem representatives.

The demonstrations, conversations and experiences you have on this trip will reshape how you see the future of sustainability. One stop will be an afternoon with Mike Casey at the New Zealand Zero cherry orchard. If you want to see cutting-edge technology driving productive and profitable outcomes, while being transfixed on sustainability happening here in New Zealand – look no further than what Mike is doing.
