Rural businessman Richard Green of Canterbury has been appointed to the AGMARDT board.

AGMARDT is an independent not-for-profit trust that aims to foster and enable innovation and leadership within the agricultural, horticultural and forestry sectors of New Zealand.

 “We are very fortunate to have Richard join the AGMARDT board of trustees,” says chair Barry Brook. 

“He brings a wide range of agribusiness experience to our board and I am sure he will make a valuable contribution to the organisation.”

Green is involved in aged care, honey production, marketing and dairy farming businesses.  

He sits on the boards of Lignotech Developments Ltd, the Foundation for Arable Research, Canterbury Westland Cancer Society, New Zealand Institute of Primary Industry Management and the Rural Leadership Consortium.   

Green spent 11 years in the seed industry and was previously general manager international for PGG Wrightson Seeds and sales and marketing director for AGRICOM.  Before that he was an agricultural consultant in Otago.
