Organisers of the AgriKidsNZ and TeenAg competitions are advising teams to enter now because of the popularity of the event. Competitions will be held around the country to coincide with the FMG Young Farmer of the Year regional finals, which start in February. New Zealand Young Farmers Competitions Co-ordinator David Highsted said that they had seen record entry numbers this year. The number of teams competing had been expanded to adjust to this growth.
