AgResearch’s four locations, spread across Aotearoa New Zealand, are designed to balance our national and regional science priorities as well as make the most of opportunities to co-locate with our research partners.

Designed for the future

Most of our scientists are located at four campuses in Palmerston North, Lincoln, Hamilton and Mosgiel.

Our newest facility is Te Ohu Rangahau Kai, which translates to mean “a co-operative community of food researchers”. It is located at Massey University, near our Grasslands campus in Palmerston North. Opened in 2020, Te Ohu Rangahau Kai is shared with our Riddet Institute and Food HQ partners Massey University, Plant and Food Research and Fonterra. It features new science laboratories, modern working spaces, meeting rooms and shared areas was designed with significant input from AgResearch people to ensure they are fit for purpose now and into the future.

Further south, near Christchurch, we are currently building a new science facility on independently owned land at the Lincoln University campus. It will capture all the same co-location benefits as Te Ohu Rangahau Kai with a land-based science focus. The facility is expected to open late in 2023.

All our science facilities provide the skilled staff and resources for a more effective and collaborative approach to tackling regional, national and international science issues.

AgResearch farms

AgResearch owns a number of farms across New Zealand that we utilise for research as well as science and technology projects for the benefit of the agricultural sector and the country.
