We’re committed to a world in which biodiversity thrives in harmony with humankind. Where hunger and climate change are terms relegated to history books. Where farms are more sustainable, consisting of plants that are more adaptive and resilient, to help increase economic prosperity for all families and their communities. In short, where agriculture is part of the solution to many of the planet’s biggest challenges.
Planes, drones, complex data capture and intelligence-led recommendations. What might sound like a military operation is now an accurate description of modern farming, thanks to advances in smart technology.
Agritech and the adoption of smart tech on farms around New Zealand is helping farmers achieve a host of benefits: higher crop yield, fewer pesticides, less nutrient run-off and greater sustainability – to name a few.

Soil health systems increased net income for 85% of farmers growing corn and 88% growing soybean
RESEARCH TRIANGLE PARK, N.C., March 9, 2021 /3BL Media/ – Improving soil health can help farmers build drought resilience, increase nutrient availability, suppress diseases, reduce erosion and nutrient losses, and increase economic benefits according to recent Soil Health Institute research. “In addition to benefiting farmers and their land, many soil health management systems also benefit the broader environment by storing soil carbon, reducing greenhouse gas emissions, and improving water quality,” says Dr. Wayne Honeycutt, President and CEO, Soil Health Institute (SHI).
At first glance, it seems like an odd pairing. Granted, we don’t often hear about mining and farming being discussed simultaneously, let alone how they can work together. But this unique relationship is being fostered right now at Eldorado Gold’s Efemçukuru operation in Turkey.
