We understand the agricultural sector’s complexity and support improved decision making, from an individual property to industry-wide scale.

Horticulture, dairy, dry stock and arable systems are hugely valuable for New Zealand’s economy. We support productivity improvements through effective extension delivery. We have specialist skills in the agri-environment interface, with a focus on enhancing sustainability and resilience.

Here’s where we can make a difference 

  • Conduct extension and applied learning to improve sector production and resilience 
  • Train and mentor extension professionals across the arable, dairy, drystock and horticulture sectors
  • Support industry to develop whole systems approaches for farming within land use limits
  • Support agencies to develop policies underpinning sustainable land use
