Congratulations to final cohort of TNQ Drought Hub Hone and Harvest teams

    Congratulations to the final cohort of Hone and Harvest teams who have graduated from the TNQ Drought Hub’s business accelerator program in partnership with Farmers2Founders. Over the last 12 months, the hub has been looking for agtech ideas to help make a positive impact for the agricultural industry within TNQ and beyond.

    The most recent round of teams have challenged their thinking, developed their confidence and learnt skills to help grow their ideas and businesses. Though the hub’s network of producers, industry and government, the teams will be able to continue their commercialisation journey through trials, funding opportunities and being linked with important stakeholders .

    These teams are working on technologies that range from low-tech innovations that pump water runoff to rehabilitate landscapes and turning fruit and vegetable waste into biproducts for the animal feed industry, through to a quality assurance compliance service to help keep up to date with industry standards.

    Congratulations to the Harvest teams, Four Daughters and Spades and the Hone teams, Ocean Orchards, PSKL, Aqua Perception, Hillbillie Hogs, Nutriq, Custom Enzymes, GPS Trapping and Biochar.
