Christchurch, 20 October 2016 - Precision agriculture firm, CropLogic, has been named one of the most promising early stage companies at the annual TIN100 Awards announced in Auckland last night.

The TIN100 Awards recognise the leading technology exporters in New Zealand following the release of the annual TIN100 Report. The Report analyses the performance of the country’s largest exporters in the areas of ICT, High-tech Manufacturing and Biotechnology.

CropLogic was amongst ten shortlisted companies including 8i, BioLumic, Engender Technologies, Footfalls & Heartbeats, Hydroxsys, Invert Robotics, Mars Bio-imaging Ltd, Parrot Analytics and Timely.

Jamie Cairns, CropLogic’s CEO, said: “We’re proud to be recognised at the 2016 TIN100 Awards alongside so many innovative New Zealand companies.

“The Award comes at a time when New Zealand’s technology export sector is really starting to establish itself on an international stage. We’re delighted to be part of that, and to be contributing to the country’s economic success.

“Our aim at CropLogic is to become the leading provider of end-to-end agronomy services to global crop-growers.
