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.
Drinks & dinner are also planned after the AGM at the Hawke’s Bay Club. A full programme for the day will be provided soon, and all paid-up growers have been sent information about the AGM. If you have not received this please contact Karen on or call 04-494 9984.
Following positive discussions on the asparagus robotic harvester project with growers, we will be discussing further the future levy requirements and conducting a vote to increase the current levy rate at the AGM. The remits for voting, will be sent out with the AGM notice of business and papers after 5pm on 18 June 2021 (when grower remits close).
