Science is key to unlocking innovation in the plant production sector, which will help address complex problems, manage risk and fuel future export opportunities.
Our investment in science will lift innovation, creating a step change in access to relevant science, research, development and technical advice.
Our science and innovation strategy identifies the current strategic priorities and sets out a plan to address these. It recognises the value of the plant production sector to the economy and wellbeing of New Zealand and the importance of science to underpin our vision for a vibrant and professional sector.
Our strategic priorities are:
- Sustainable plant production systems.
- Improved diagnostics for assessing plant health.
- Enhanced soil health plant quality and vigour.
- Knowledge transfer to NZ Plant Producers members.
