Innovation, not scale, the key to the future of NZ Agriculture

“A challenge faced by the New Zealand Agriculture sector is how to move from a production-focused to a value-focused industry.” -NZFarmer

A recent article by NZFarmer talked about how we need to protect and preserve New Zealand while still maintaining our position as a leading natural protein producer. How ever, there was a 133, 000 rise in dairy cattle numbers in the last year?

Food for thought, how do we communicate science and use it to grow innovation? how do we get the tools we’ve found in research across to continue economic growth, while preserving the New Zealand environment?
