The Horticulture Conference 2018

Horticulture is the primary industries’ quiet achiever - expanding, growing and meeting global consumer demands for healthy food. Growers play a valuable role in the New Zealand economy, both at a local level as producers, employers and food suppliers to New Zealanders, and with exports, which have increased by 40 percent in the two years from June 2014 to 2016.
