Ballance Agri-Nutrients is calling on all aspiring tertiary students wanting a future in agriculture to apply for one of its four $4000 sponsorships.

Ballance general manager Sheena Henderson says agriculture is an exciting place to be, almost all the global mega trends are being worked on in the primary sector.

Farmers and growers are increasingly being challenged with how to produce enough food for a rapidly increasing global population, and at the same time, protect our natural environment.

“We need people who are able to apply critical thinking to join New Zealand’s agricultural team. This is their chance to make a difference, helping to build a sustainable primary sector that protects our unique natural resources,” Henderson says.

“On behalf of Ballance I want to encourage ambitious students pursuing a career in agricultural and related industry to apply for a 2023 sponsorship.”

“As our biggest sector, the country, communities and businesses involved with agriculture, including Ballance, rely on future generations to continue the success of the industry.”

To apply a student must be studying a field related to agri-business, horticulture or the primary sector – this is not limited to on-farm and farm advisory roles. Student’s whose applications are successful can apply for their sponsorship to renew for up to three years.

Applications close Sunday, November 13. For more information, go here.
