Jemma Mulvihill graduated from Lincoln University with a Bachelor of Agricultural Science with Honours in 2009. During Jemma’s stint as an undergrad she completed a year’s study abroad in the US at Colorado State University where she came across Precision Ag, amongst other things, and all it had to offer for the US market.
Jemma saw that there could be a really good fit with some of these Precision Agriculture technologies and techniques here in NZ to enhance NZ agriculture.
After finishing her undergrad degree she took the plunge and founded Agri Optics NZ (now Vantage NZ) with Craige and Roz Mackenzie, to provide Precision Agriculture technology and services to fill the gap in the ever-changing technology drive ag market that was developing in NZ.
