From the Vice-Chancellor
This year marks the eighth year as a strategic partner with Fieldays, and we look forward to working together on enhancing and growing the agricultural sector both regionally and nationally. This year also marks the University's 50th anniversary, which makes our presence at Fieldays all the more significant.
Although we are a strong player in the region, we are also an institution with strong international connections which stem from our partnerships with other institutions and organisations around the world. While you are at Fieldays, I invite you to visit our Premier Feature stand and find out more about the research we carry out at the University of Waikato. I look forward to seeing you there.
Professor Roy Crawford
