  • Allied Farmers publishes its Annual Report for 2021 and is focused on optimising its business operations.
  • Seeka to acquire Orangewood Limited, Northland’s famous kiwifruit business.

New Zealand is known for its highly developed and market-oriented agriculture sector. In fact, its agricultural industry has cemented itself as the country’s economic powerhouse.

Apart from traditional farming, NZ farmers make use of highly mechanised machines and equipment and deploy the most innovative farming techniques.

One of the latest trends in the Kiwi agriculture industry is the use of vertical farming, where food is produced on vertical surfaces, unlike traditional farming where food is grown on a single-level field.

This new framing trend is not just about piling plants on the top of another, but making use of expert technology, thereby greatly enhancing the yield of the crops.

Here in this article, we would skim through the five NZX agriculture stocks with a 6-month yield.

Allied Farmers Limited (NZX:ALF)

Allied Farmers Limited invests in NZ’s agriculture sector. Earlier this month, the Company had released its 2021 Annual Report for the year ended 30 June 2021, wherein it revealed an NPAT of over NZ$2 million, reflecting an improved performance from its livestock business amid the pandemic.

However, the said improvement was offset by a reduced contribution from ALF’s veal business, reflecting the impact of COVID-19 on the market pricing as well as returns. As a result, ALF’s tax losses stood nearly at NZ$40 million.

The Company is focused on optimising its business operations and is evaluating new growth opportunities.

It is going to hold its Annual Meeting in November this year, wherein the Board would provide an update on dividend distribution.

At the time of writing, on 22 September, Allied Farmers rose by 1.64% at NZ$0.620.
