From the Vice-Chancellor
Professor Roy Crawford
As the strategic partner at the National Agricultural Fieldays, we welcome the opportunity to showcase how our teaching and research benefit the community, the region and the nation.
I believe our location in the heart of rural New Zealand makes us especially attuned to the issues facing farming today. We have expertise in land ownership, environmental impacts, soil remediation, water as a valuable resource - the list goes on.
Earlier this year, we welcomed respected agricultural commentator and researcher Jacqueline Rowarth who has joined us as Professor of Agribusiness. Professor Rowarth has already begun to strengthen our links with the wider agriculture sector in the Waikato region and beyond.
I hope you enjoy reading about how our researchers and students are adding value to land-based industries, and we look forward to welcoming you at our Fieldays stand in the Premier Feature area.
