The 2021 NZAC AGM will be held in Napier on Friday 9th July 2021 at The Hawke’s Bay Club, Cnr Marine Parade and Browning Street, starting at 4.30pm sharp.
The day will begin with a field trip focusing on the use of automation and technology in horticulture in the morning (commencing at 10.30am in Hastings). This will be followed by presentations on current NZAC projects and activities including the robotic asparagus harvester project, farm environment plans, herbicide management, variety trials, promotions and other updates in the afternoon at the Hawke’s Bay Club from 2pm.
Following positive discussions on the asparagus robotic harvester project with growers, we will be discussing the future levy requirements and conducting a vote to increase the current levy rate at the AGM. Grower remits closed 18th June and full papers will be sent to asparagus growers. If you have not received this please contact Karen on or call 04-494 9984.
Drinks & dinner are planned after the AGM at the Hawke’s Bay Club. NZAC thank our sponsors for their support of this: Premier Seeds, MG Marketing, Fruitfed Supplies, and Fresh Direct.
