Ballance is proud to play a role in assisting New Zealand’s primary producers reach their goals while ensuring the long term viability and sustainability of New Zealand’s agricultural and horticultural sectors.

This is achieved by enabling good farmers to become even better by exchanging knowledge, demonstrating what best practice looks like and to help farmers and growers to meet their individual goals.

The success of our primary industry is crucial to our economy, to the ability of rural communities to flourish and to New Zealand’s ability to take advantage of the growing global demand for food which is high quality, safe and produced with minimal environmental impacts.

Ballance proudly invest in the future of our industry by fostering the education of young people and future industry leaders through knowledge transfer and sponsorship support of the national Young Grower of the Year Awards as well as other sector programmes. Our team looks forward to meeting the finalists of the competition.
