Lincoln University’s strategic mission is “to unlock the power of the land to enhance lives and grow the future”. To enable such an undertaking in the context of agriculture requires joint efforts in Aotearoa New Zealand and with international partners to increase productivity, reduce environmental footprints and embrace the whole value chain from soil to fork. Part of that journey will be an ever-increasing use of digital technologies in monitoring, decision making, operating and managing the primary production systems of a fast growing bio-economy. Digital-based agricultural production systems are different to the current mainstream approaches. The Master of Precision Agriculture will provide technical leaders for the agriculture and food and fibre industries and large agricultural or food-related organisations including processors and wholesalers, by training postgraduates who will become managers, data-driven scientists, consultants, farmers, sustainable production managers and strategic managers. The Master of Precision Agriculture is taught in conjunction with the University of Canterbury. Note: Admission to this programme in 2021 has been suspended.
