Applications for the Rabobank Business Management Programmes have opened for 2019, with the Farm Managers' Programme returning to New Zealand for the first time in a decade.

Rabobank New Zealand CEO Todd Charteris told The Country's Jamie Mackay it was "great news" to have the Farm Managers' Programme returning to Kiwis shores for the first time since it was last held in Christchurch in 2009.

"I'm really delighted the programme has come back to New Zealand," said Charteris, "It's a great opportunity for local, young aspiring farmers to really put themselves out there and hopefully get some learnings to deal with some of these challenges we're facing."


The Executive Development Programme (EDP) and the Farm Managers' Programme (FMP), are designed for progressive New Zealand and Australian farmers looking to take their businesses to the next level.

Applications for the FMP close on Friday, March 29 and the EDP on Thursday, April
