AgResearch, along with Government Ministers, has decided to downsize Invermay against the advice of its management team, and move the majority of operations to Lincoln in Christchurch. An independent Berl report commissioned by the Dunedin City Council found that the business case to move Invermay to Lincoln did not stack up.
AgResearch’s Invermay campus in Mosgiel is a world class centre for important research. Most of the scientists who work there have said they won’t make the proposed shift to Lincoln. Some will retire. Many will head overseas. If the group is disbanded and the partnerships they have are left to whither, the loss for New Zealand will be even greater than the loss to Dunedin.
