New Zealand has a strong track record in agricultural technology, but one of our biggest challenges remains the development and commercialisation of new ideas for New Zealand and the rest of the world.

Callaghan Innovation is proud to support new technology development through the Innovation Accelerator, a partnership between Callaghan Innovation and Fieldays.

The Innovation Accelerator is a space where selected businesses with bright ideas will exhibit to promote commercialisation and increase their connectivity within the domestic and international marketplace.

This year we are supporting six businesses that are taking their products to the next level through innovation. Exhibiting alongside us you will see: Liquid Strip, Pastoral Robotics, AgTech industries, Carry-Mate, Danz Zappz and Farm Medix.

Innovation is a founding pillar of Fieldays. New Zealand needs more businesses tailoring agtech solutions for today’s farmers. Callaghan Innovation can help connect businesses with the information, people and conversations required to strengthen research and development.

We’re also part of the Lab at the Innovation Centre, a place for supporting and mentoring agritech businesses. Come and visit us to book a time to meet one of our advisers, we can talk to you about access to technical and scientific expertise, impartial commercial advice, industry networks, development grants and getting your product to market.

Working with Callaghan Innovation speeds up and strengthens your product development, reduces risk and creates market advantage.

Come and see us at Fieldays 15-18 June.
