The focus of the day is to demonstrate technology within the viticulture industry in New Zealand. With that, we will be showcasing the BA Smart Sprayer, fitted with the innovative vine density spraying technology from Smart Apply®. The BA Smart Sprayer is the first of its kind in New Zealand and has been operating at Pernod Ricard since 2020. This is your opportunity to see the Smart Sprayer in action and hear from the team at Pernod Ricard about the benefits they have seen. We are also excited to have Gary Vandenbark, Chief Engineer of Smart Apply® in the US, join us to answer all your questions on the system.
The second technology on display will be OXIN, the world’s first autonomous, multi-functional vineyard tractor from Smart Machine.
The event is also an opportunity to learn about the world-leading range of vine trimmers and defoliators from COLLARD.
Finally, you will have the opportunity to meet and talk with the BA team from both BA Marlborough on Opawa Street and BA’s Head Office in Hautapu, Cambridge.
The event is free to attend and there are two sessions to choose from both of which include lunch: 12 to 1pm.
Morning Session: 10am – 12pm
Afternoon Session: 1pm – 3pm
This event is a rare opportunity to see two lots of precision viticulture products in action as well as hear from the team from Pernod Ricard Winemakers.
