PlantTech Research Institute: Official Interactive Launch

Come see cutting-edge work in digital horticulture research, technology and Artificial Intelligence at PlantTech's ‘mini exhibition’.

What's it all about?

Come celebrate as PlantTech Research Institute starts its journey to harness New Zealand’s artificial intelligence, robotics and drone sectors to address scientific challenges in the nation’s horticulture industry with cutting-edge technology solutions that produce competitive advantage.

Discuss and participate with our 10 founding shareholder companies – some global leaders in horticultural technology – as they showcase their cutting-edge work in digital horticulture research, technology and Artificial Intelligence in our ‘mini exhibition’.

Stalls include:

Robotics Plus Limited, a New Zealand agricultural robotics company in which Yamaha Motor Company invested $US10 million last year, will have its Autonomous Multipurpose Mobile Platform present.

Bluelab, manufacturers and exporters of hand-held meters and control equipment for measuring and controlling pH, conductivity and temperature of a liquid, will demonstrate a closed system based on hydroponics.

GPS-it, an aerial farm mapping and software development company, illustrate how it provides high-quality, customised geospatial solutions to its clients.

The Bay of Plenty naturally lends itself to being a test bed for research and technology development that could potentially transform plant-based value chains, and regional economic performance.

Leveraging these strengths will allow us to ensure the horticulture industry remains ahead of the inevitable economic, environmental, biosecurity, climate change and crop health challenges that lie ahead.  

As Kiwis, we love a challenge, and for us this is a chance to demonstrate our can-do attitude and work together to create something ahead of its time.
