Otago-grown agricultural technology company Techion has cornered an international market. Its founder, Greg Mirams, explained how the internet of things and fast fibre broadband has transformed the way he does business.
In a Dunedin bedroom in 1992, Greg Mirams invented Techion’s founding product: FEKPAKG2. It was developed to help local farmers test the effectiveness of their drenching processes, a technique farmers and vets use to control parasites in animals. It’s an integral part of New Zealand’s agricultural industry, and since 1992 Techion has been changing the way drenching is done.
