Why study Agricultural Innovation?

Agricultural Innovation focuses on the major issues in agriculture that impact food production, security, safety and quality. The Program explores the innovative changes in agriculture required to mitigate the impact of extreme weather events, greenhouse gas emissions, and degradation of soil and water quality.

Teaching focuses on the agricultural and industrial processes that drive food production systems necessary to guarantee food security in a world with ever-increasing demands for food.

You will learn how innovation is used to advance economic, societal, and ethical goals, such as increasing the monetary and nutritional value of food while reducing the negative environmental impacts.

Maori perspectives relating to agriculture and the importance of Maori throughout the primary sector will be woven into the fabric of the course, providing students with an ethical framework and guidelines for engagement.
