Driving prosperity by transforming agriculture

“We are committed to attracting and retaining people of the highest calibre, with many of our scientists leading the world in their field.”

About Us

AgResearch partners with the pastoral sector with the aim of delivering the innovation needed to create value for New Zealand.

AgResearch plays a key role in delivering new knowledge and technologies which underpin the pastoral, agri-food and agri-technology value chains.

We are proud to know that the work we’re doing now is helping to build New Zealand’s future. The significance of this work, along with our reputation for excellence and our clear sense of purpose, are all driving factors in the global recognition we achieve.

AgResearch’s Māori whakatauki (proverb) – āta mātai, mātai whetū –  can be translated as ‘being grounded, researching deliberately while shooting for the stars’.
