This study used semi-structured interviews to evaluate the perceived effectiveness of interactions among those mandated to develop and diffuse knowledge that meets the identified needs of farmers/growers in the New Zealand primary sector, as well as the users of knowledge, practices and technologies. We used the systemic innovation policy framework, which integrates the structural and functional streams of innovation system enquiry. This enabled analysis of the effectiveness of the functions that support technology co-development, along with the presence and quality of the structural components that are needed for these functions to be effective. Key lessons are the need for: (i) incentivising individuals that are able to effectively act as translators between science and farmers/growers; (ii) strengthening of interactions between research organisations and industry good bodies in knowledge development, setting strategic direction for innovation efforts and exchanging knowledge; and (iii) institutional support for greater collaboration among government, industry, research and users.
