WELCOME TO THE NATIONAL HORTICULTURAL FIELD DAY New Zealand’s largest Horticultural event

This year’s event will look quite different with an exciting new outdoor layout. We have expanded over on to the Main Arena area of the Showgrounds creating an outdoor quadrant which will be filled with the latest software, technology, machinery and services. We have an impressive static and interactive demonstration area, and exhibitor demonstration space. The one day event continues to exceed growth projections, as the industry embraces this event as the one stop Horticultural shop. The National Horticultural Field Day has it all – bringing together New Zealand’s largest horticulture-specific trade show, BNZ Seminar Series, a series of industry competitions including the hugely popular Hawke’s Bay Young Fruitgrower of the Year, and last but almost most importantly, a venue for industry discussion and networking.

With the Horticulture industry in great heart, and arguably sitting poll position over the Agriculture industry currently, the 2017 event is going to be a great showcase for the industry. With visitors and exhibitors from all over New Zealand, emphasis this year is being placed on celebrating innovation and creating the pathway for the industry to tell its’ stories. The BNZ Seminar Series has an impressive line up again and will start with the annual Horticulture Power breakfast event which is always a sell out so get in quick for tickets. Alongside the large trade show and BNZ Seminar Series, the Field Day hosts the 13th annual Hawke’s Bay Young Fruitgrower of the Year Competition, a fantastic competition which truly showcases some outstanding young talent working in our local industry. The competition this year will be split between indoor stations and outdoor area giving Field Day visitors a better opportunity

to see these talented young Fruitgrowers in action. National Horticultural Field Day organisers enjoy putting the horticulture industry ‘on show’ at the Field Day. The Field Day is a one stop shop where visitors can see these innovative companies showcase their products and technology, hear from world class speakers all whilst networking and catching up with others in the industry for a great day off the land or out of the office. The National Horticultural Field Day will be held on Thursday 29 June at Showgrounds Hawke’s Bay in Hastings, gates open from 8.30am. Free Field day tickets are available to download from our website, or visit one of our exhibitors for tickets. See the full exhibitor list on page 20.

Hawke’s Bay Young Fruitgrower of the Year – the competition is a must see in itself but be sure to check out the ‘Hortisports’ Challenge at 1pm. 4. Tug-o-War – this competition is hard fought and fierce, see Packhouse against Packhouse, at 3.30pm in the main outdoor quadrant on the Arena. 5.

HAWKE’S BAY FRUITGROWERS’ ASSOCIATION Hawke’s Bay Young Fruitgrower of the Year Competition

The Hawke’s Bay Fruitgrowers’ Association, with the help of the HB Fruitgrowers’ Charitable Trust will be holding the 13th annual HB Young Fruitgrower of the Year competition. ‘This competition has grown in prestige and significance since its inception’, said President of the Association Lesley Wilson, ‘It is now the industry’s showcase for up and coming young Fruitgrowers and our future leaders.’ Eight competitors will compete in a range of practical and general growing competencies during the day. They will then compete in a speech competition held at the annual dinner the next night. The winner of the overall competition goes on to compete in the National Young Grower of the year after the Hawke’s Bay event.

‘It is a rigorous competition,’ said Wilson. ‘Our previous winners have all gone on to proudly represent Hawke’s Bay in the National competitions.’ For a little light relief, and audience interaction, the competitors compete in the Hortisports competition in the middle of the day. The competitors are asked to complete some ‘entertaining’ tasks which always provides a few laughs. The last section of the competition happens during a gala dinner event to be held Friday 30th June at the Napier Conference Centre. Contestants will deliver a speech expressing their views and ideas on a topical subject during the evening. Competition results are announced toward the end of the evening and awards presented to the winners. Dinner reservations have been sold out again this year.

Prizes: There are some great prizes to the Final Winners, Runner-up and 3rd place getters, together with prizes which are also awarded for each section of the competition. All prizes are donated by the various sponsors and judges. 1st Place $1,000 Horticentre sponsored cash prize plus a grant donated by Pickmee to be used for further training, education or professional development. The winner will also receive a study trip to Nelson which includes airfares and accommodation sponsored by Turners and Growers Ltd. Jenkins Freshpac Systems all expenses trip to Horticulture Conference 2nd Place $750 Horticentre sponsored cash prize plus a study trip to Nelson sponsored by Turners and Growers Ltd. 3rd Place $500 Horticentre sponsored cash prize


TUG OF WAR CHALLENGE Horticulture industry teams have a chance to vie for the historic Hawke’s Bay Fruitgrowers Association “Tug of War’ Challenge. The event, sponsored by Hurford Parker Insurance Brokers, is one of the highlights of the National Horticultural Field Day. Teams of

eight, which must include two females, give their all in this keenly fought event. There are prizes for the winning team, the runners up and also the best dressed team. The beautiful trophy was donated to the Association by the then

President, Ralph Paynter, back in 1936. To enter, contact Dianne Vesty at the HBFA Office.

everyone who attends the field day gets a chance to vote. Alongside this is a silent auction where people have the opportunity to buy the artwork. A generous prize package sponsored by Gifford Devine provide $1000, $500 & $250 for 1st, 2nd and 3rd. The first prize winner also

receives a ticket to the HB Young Fruitgrower of the Year dinner. For an entry form please contact Dianne Vesty 06 870 8541 or go to the website

HBFA ART COMPETITION Now in its tenth year, the Gifford Devine sponsored HBFA Art Competition always draws notable entries. This year we have made a significant change to the format by turning it into an Outdoor Art Competition. One of the criteria is that, like a fruitgrower, the art work must be able to withstand any challenge presented to it by the weather. The idea is based on beautifying the entranceways, workplaces, and gardens of Hawke’s Bay orchards and to connect urban gardens with the Heretaunga Plains fruit production; this includes its people, produce and tools or any other aspects related to the fruit growing industry. Any artist can enter and the works will be displayed outdoors at the National Horticulture Field Day. The winner is chosen by the people;


PIPFRUIT NZ EDUCATION EXPO During 2016 Pipfruit NZ took part in many Careers events around the country and after consultation with Industry and attendees have taken the view that something needs to change with the way we engage with students, parents and teachers at these events. At the Pettigrew Green arena careers event PNZ in conjunction with the HBFGA rolled out a new look, we have tried to provide an interactive experience for students that adds some context to careers in Hort today. For this ďŹ rst event with the new look we had a drone simulator display named by Industry ambassadors who talked to students about their careers and pathways we also had an interactive display in conjunction with Plant and Food that enabled students to get up close with some of our harder to see critters. The whole idea is to give students their parents and teachers a different view of Hort/Pipfruit as a career and by providing them with some interactive displays that tell a modern story we hope that we can start to change the perception about our sector that tends to start and ďŹ nish with picking bags and ladders. At the National Horticultural Field Day we want to take this approach to another level and as such we have worked with other organisations involved in the Horticulture space to develop interactive modules designed to give students a hands-on view of the Industry. Pipfruit NZ, Horticulture NZ, Fruition Horticulture, Plant and Food and the Primary ITO have come together with different activities designed to engage with students and give them a real taste of the sector and a different perspective on a career in the New Zealand Apple and Pear Industry.

FROM WHERE IT ALL STARTED The National Horticultural Field Day is in it’s sixth year of rapid growth, starting as a small horticultural expo in 2011, to grow into the leading horticultural industry event we see today. The original audience was largely local Hawke’s Bay Fruitgrowers who saw the opportunity for an event designed entirely for them. At a time when agricultural focussed lifestyle Field Days were booming, the need for a Horticulturally specific event was very strong. Each year, the Hawke’s Bay Fruitgrowers Association and their Charitable Trust has supported the Hawke’s Bay A&P Society to

grow this event to what it is today - the largest Horticulture event in New Zealand, with industry seminars, new technology and Innovation Showcase. It is also a tribute to all involved and shows the strength of the event, that all founding partners of the event continue to play a key role in the event. As the rapid growth continues, the event grows bigger and bigger and the audience widens to now openly encompass the vegetable sector, cropping and viticulture industries. The journey has by no means come to a halt either, with major plans in place to continue to grow
