Event description

The Microsoft AgTech Hackathon connects smart farmers with technology experts. Together they creatively and collaboratively create on-farm opportunities and solve challenges by combining farmers’ practical knowledge with experts in computer programming.

Launched during NZ AgriFood Week, the Hackathon is designed to not only help solve problems, but enable a connection and conversation between our rural and urban communities.

The Hackathon was collaboratively founded by Microsoft, BCC, Manawatu-Rangitikei Federated Farmers, Accelerate 25, Future Institutes and New Zealand AgriFood Week.
