The University’s site at Central Districts Field Days was a huge success, with large numbers of attendees finding out about new research that will benefit the primary sector.

The University is a major partner of Field Days, and this year’s site focused on research related to water. Projects feature at the site included the sustainability project, which will bring academics from across the University together to work cohesively to address issues in the Manawatu catchment.

Other research featured is the work of PhD student Indika Herath, who is working to provide water footprints for primary products, and the Roof Water Research Centre, which seeks the best ways to harvest and store rainwater safely and effectively.

Total visitor numbers to the three-day event were up by 1668 on last year to 36,519. More than 500 entered a competition to win a Massey branded Swandri.
