A Southern delegation will deliver a message to Government about the need to grow - not cut - Dunedin's Invermay research centre.

The move was confirmed at a press conference in Dunedin this afternoon, after more than 50 delegates from around the South Island emerged from an AgResearch/Invermay summit held in the city.

Dunedin Mayor Dave Cull told media delegates had agreed on a proposal calling for reinvestment in Invermay's current research base.

Details were still being finalised, but would be presented to AgResearch representatives and the Government within two weeks, he said.
