What's a Hackathon? AgTech Hackathon: Manawatu

Connecting smart farmers with smarter on-farm solutions.

AgTech Hackathon will enable our farming community to present everyday on-farm opportunities and challenges to technology experts, who can then creatively solve these problems drawing on their hardware and software programming skills.

Teams will begin work on Saturday 11th March and continue to work throughout the New Zealand AgriFood Investment Week (13th-18th March) to develop hardware or software based solutions that will then be presented in a final pitch ceremony on Friday 16th March, at Central Districts Field Days.
