Growth Awards 2018
2018 Winners & Finalists - New Zealand
Today’s growers face a tough challenge: sustainably growing food and fibre for a growing global population. That’s why in 2013, Syngenta launched the Good Growth Plan - to make a lasting positive impact on the farmers and rural communities who provide the world’s food security and long-term sustainability of our planet. Supporting the goals of the Good Growth Plan, Syngenta runs its annual Growth Awards to recognise innovation, best practice and leadership in Australian and New Zealand agribusiness.
“The goal of the Growth Awards is to recognise growers and advisers who are making a difference to the industry through leadership, best practice and innovation” - Paul Luxton, Syngenta Territory Head – Australasia.
“We’ve been working on our farm’s sustainability model for 20 years, and the Growth Awards provides recognition that our work is making a different to the environment, and the hard work does get noticed by the public”- David Birkett, Grower from Leeston NZ (2015 winner Sustainability Category)
