Disruptive opportunities in New Zealand Agritech

World trends drive the need to produce more food using fewer inputs, agriculture is seeking new products, practices and technologies. As a sector we must use fewer chemicals and less water. Subsistence farmers need to close the yield gap. Production farmers want yield boosts and cost savings. Consumers are demanding healthier, clean food and ingredients.

Sometimes we only know there was a revolution by looking in the rear view mirror. That is not the case with the disruption in agriculture today. We can see the innovation and disruption that’s occurring in real time all around us and we need to leverage all the opportunities Agritech and innovation provides.
