Evolving our awards to reflect a diversifying industry 





Agrow launched its annual awards more than a decade ago, with 14 categories. Today we have 15 categories available to enter at the Agribusiness Intelligence Crop Science Awards 2019, but the areas of the industry they award excellence with are very different.

Some categories have been popular since their inception, such as Best Formulation Innovation, Best New Crop Production Product or Trait, Best Stewardship Programme and Best Public Outreach Programme. And Best Company from an Emerging Region has allowed a different organisation every year to get exposure on a global scale.

However, new developments have allowed us to introduce the following exciting categories:


Best New Biopesticide, introduced in 2010

Agribusiness Intelligence’s crop protection services began covering biopesticides in more detail in 2010 and it was decided that this rapidly developing sector merited a separate category to reflect innovation in the market. This category was renamed as Best New Biological Product in 2016, covering both biopesticides and biostimulants. It recognizes the need for new solutions which mitigate resistance, whilst also meeting the increased demand for organic produce.   

Best Packaging Innovation, introduced in 2012

This was added in response to requests from applicants and to expand the scope of the awards to include packaging companies, which until then did not have a specific category for which they could apply. The award reflects the increasing desire from businesses to use more sustainable packing solutions, reduce waste and optimize supply chain efficiency. 

Best Innovation in Digital Farming Technology, introduced in 2018

With the agriculture community moving to collect and utilize data to improve techniques, scheduling and the way solutions are developed, Agrow introduced this category to recognize the rapid development of technology to service this area of the market. 

Best Innovation in Precision Agriculture Technology, new for 2019

With farm management changing significantly with new technology enablement, and allowing precision technology to enable intra-field variabilities to be addressed, we are introducing this category to recognize exciting new developments in the technology sector.
