TIN used the backdrop of Fieldays 2021, the Southern Hemisphere’s largest agricultural event, to launch its second annual NZ Agritech Insights Report at an NZTE-hosted event.

Guest speaker at the event was Hon. Stuart Nash, Minister for Economic and Regional Development and Minister of Forestry, who acknowledged the food and fibre sector as the backbone of our country’s economy.

The report provides a closer look into NZ’s agricultural technology sector based on data from TIN’s 2020 survey results, including size and significance, key export markets, investment challenges and opportunities, along with a comprehensive directory of over 110 early stage Agritech companies currently developing their own IP in New Zealand.

Here on Fieldays TV, TIN’s Greg Shanahan and Brendan Boughen discussed the findings of the report with CEO of NZ AgriTech Brendan O’Connell, and its chair Kenneth Irons.
