22 August 2018 - Napier Conference Centre, Napier

Young Grower of the Year is an annual competition run by Horticulture New Zealand to find the best young fruit or vegetable grower in the country. Finalists are made up of the winners of the five regional Young Fruit Grower competitions and the winner of the NZ Young Vegetable Grower. 


Young Grower will be a step out of your comfort zone, will push you to learn valuable new skills, give you exceptional networking opportunities with industry leaders and boost your career in ways you could never imagine.

The winner of Young Grower of the Year will go on to represent the fruit and vegetable sectors at the Young Horticulturist of the Year competition  where they will compete for their share of $40,000 worth of prizes.


During the day, finalists will rotate their way through four business and four practical activities. In the afternoon, they will take part in the Ballance Agri-Nutrients Leadership Panel and give their views on a contemporary leadership issue. Spectators are welcome.


The evening Awards Dinner is one of industry's most anticipated events. Here the finalists will present their speeches before the winners are announced
