The Founders

Growing up on a sheep and beef farm in Moeraki, Graeme was first exposed to the environmental impacts of his family’s trade at a young age. This sparked an interest in preservation of New Zealand’s rich farming history, with a focus on moving forward with minimal environmental impact. His time at Lincoln University exposed him to new thinking towards sustainable farming, a topic he has built a career on. Graeme has been working with practical application of fertigation for the last 15 years in New Zealand, with an underlying desire to provide a solution for our farmers facing issues with nitrate leaching. His partnership with Andy combines a huge wealth of knowledge, passion, experience and drive that allows Fertigation Systems to deliver world class solutions and services. On any given day, you can catch Graeme on farm consulting with clients, or in the office designing systems.

Born and raised in Canterbury, Andy graduated from Lincoln University with a Bachelors in Agricultural commerce. He has been driving meaningful change within the primary sector from an early age. His career stretches across many different rural industries, predominantly in the pastoral farming sector, crediting him with experience and insight rarely found in New Zealand. His first interaction with fertigation, was through an early adoption of the practice in it’s trending years, on a BioGro certified organic vineyard in the Gimblett Gravels wine growing area in Hawke’s Bay. The implementation was great success, and identified significant potential to Andy. Today you can find him driving solutions for Fertigation Systems clients in the role of Business Manager, working alongside his co-founder Graeme.
