AgTech Hackathon: Manawatu connects smart farmers with smarter on-farm solutions. Collaboratively founded by Microsoft, BCC, Manawatu-Rangitikei Federated Farmers, Accelerate 25, Future Institutes and New Zealand AgriFood Investment Week, the 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.

The identified on-farm opportunities and challenges will be made public on February 24th.

Teams will be formed and work will begin on solutions from March 11th. Teams will continue to work on their solution during the New Zealand AgriFood Investment Week with final pitches held at Central Districts Field Days on March 17th.

Successful solutions will lead to business opportunities and the products could ultimately end up in market helping to make farmers work more efficiently all around the world. AgTech Hackathon is designed to not only help solve problems but also enable a connection and conversation between our rural and urban communities.
