AgPest™ is a free tool to assist New Zealand farmers and agricultural professionals in decision-making regarding weed and pest identification, biology, impact and management.

About AgPest

AgPest contains a number of New Zealand pasture weeds and pests, which have been chosen in consultation with key farming, industry and researchers. We continually monitor for pests and routinely update new weeds and pests to the website.

AgPest offers a single website that includes practical information to upskill farmers and their advisors on identification and management of over 80 pests and weeds and provides alerts emailed out to registered users. These alerts provide timely information warning farmers of pest issues in their region and suggest appropriate management responses.

The project was initiated over 10 years ago by a team of farmers from Otago, Waikato and Northland who were struggling with a number of pasture pests. AgPest is currently a joint venture with Beef + Lamb NZ.
