In New Zealand, agriculture is a lynchpin for our wealth and wellbeing, contributing over $12.5 billion to the economy, or 5% of our gross domestic product, each year. Innovations, from both New Zealand and around the world, are helping Kiwi farmers get more from their land every year.
Some of the exciting innovations in farming today are coming from automation and IoT. Data, automation and robotics are giving us new ways to meet those age-old challenges like weather, soil nutrients and diseases. And as new regulations are put in place by local councils and the government, IoT can also give Kiwi farmers a way to demonstrate their responsible farm management practices.
Throughout September we’re focusing on the technology that will help our farmers become more productive and sustainable. Check out the various events and articles.
