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.

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